Content Creator and Instructor
Moving to the South Coast as a teenager, it didn’t take me long to get afloat and start sailing. Firstly in dinghies, then larger and larger yachts. I was lucky to spend many years volunteering with a Sail Training Organisation which taught me not only good seamanship but many important life skills. Despite a varied career including IT and Conservation, sailing was my passion, and teaching it was the ‘icing on the cake’. I first passed my Instructor ticket over 20 years ago and teaching on and off the water over the last 2 decades has become my way of life. When not teaching, I cruise in my own sailing boat around northern Europe and I never tire of ‘dropping my hook’ in some remote anchorage far from the bustle and hassle of modern living.
