Teamwork


Quicksilver team-members are from a wide variety of backgrounds and have a broad spectrum of skills. We are linked by the goal of returning the World Water Speed Record to Britain. Team-members contribute their time and skills voluntarily, dovetailing their efforts on the project with their other commitments. Each skill is suited to the project’s specific objectives. Aerodynamics, structures, and electronics are just some of fields of activity. Above all, participants are selected, and maintain their position, by dint of their ability to work harmoniously within a team environment.

An alphabetical list of current team-members appears below, and a list of past participants appears at the foot of the page. At the top of our list, we wish to acknowledge the sevenQuicksilver team-members who played an important role in our earlier work who sadly did not live to see the success to come that they collectively contributed so much to:

Ken Allen ♦ Brian Ball ♦ Ron Earwicker ♦ Bo Johannson ♦ John Macknight ♦ Ken Norris ♦ Gavin Sismey
