Cordon Rouge Club

I have been appointed Chairman of the Mumm Champagne Cordon Rouge Club for 2010. The club was founded in 2008 to recognise exceptional people for their extraordinary achievements within the realms of exploration, sailing, adventure and discovery.

The members are recognised for showing immense courage and dedication in their particular fields, from conquering mountains to traversing oceans single-handedly. The club is a way of celebrating the achievements of the members by bringing together like-minded, inspiring individuals on an annual basis.

You can find out more about each of the club members and their adventures by following these links...
