We spent two minutes with Jes Gram-Hansen, co-skipper of SAP Extreme Sailing Team talking Pink Floyd, 'Suspicious Minds' and Elvis, annoying habits and girlie nicknames...

What song would you sing at karaoke?

Damn, that’s a different one. I would sing Suspicious Minds.

Who’s that by?

You should know! The king, Elvis.

Do you have a nickname?

Sometimes Jessica, but you’ll have to ask the guys [SAP Extreme Sailing Team crew] why. I’ve never figured out why.

What music do you listen to the most?

Lately maybe some Pink Floyd, The Wall.

If a film of your life was made, which actor would play you?

Mads Mikkelsen – a Danish guy

Do you have any hidden talents?

Well I’m actually pretty good at singing.

What’s your most annoying habit?

When I really concentrate I do like “this” with my tongue (touches tongue to nose).

What three items would you put in a time capsule?

My family: mom and dad and my girlfriend.

What’s the best thing about your job?

Actually, just to be sailing.
