Aquada Cross Channel
Sir Richard Branson broke the World Record for the fastest channel crossing by an amphibious vehicle. Watermark were brought in at the outset by sponsors Virgin Atlantic to liaise with the vehicle's designer and manufacturer, Aquada, on the feasibility of the trip. With the feasibility established, our project team worked closely with local and Port authorities to calculate optimum tidal and weather conditions for a successful challenge. On the day, Watermark put in place VIP hospitality at Dover and on the beach at Calais to welcome the VIP's and media who had followed Sir Richard in a flotilla of rigid inflatable boats across the channel. The challenge and the photo opportunities our team created achieved widespread media coverage.
