Hiskia, 24, was working as a security guard at a local ATM in Namibia when he met the Vestas SailRocket team. Paul was immediately impressed by his cheery attitude and outright enthusiasm to get involved, and quickly offered him work. Hiskia has shared the team's joy and pain throughout their time at the Walvis Bay course, helping with the day-to-day routine of preparing, launching and recovering Vestas SailRocket.
Hiskia comes from Ruundu, way in the North of Namibia, and had never been on a boat before he joined the team! A pretty bizarre introduction to water sports if you think about it. Hiskia is super keen to learn, and has rapidly become an integral part of our operation. Like us, he lives for that one 'big day' when the Rocket really takes off!.
