Co-Founder - Principal
I left home for a life at sea on my 18th birthday. Within 3 years I had visited all 7 continents and landed two dream jobs, one on a cetacean research vessel and the other aboard a world famous antarctic expedition vessel. A decade (and many exciting adventures) later I decided it was about time to give something back. Not satisfied with the standards of training at existing businesses I went about setting up Ardent Training with Charly and Charlie. I now live on my own sailing boat ‘Mipha’ which I bought with my partner Charly and we spend half our time exploring remote islands and the other half teaching boating online through Ardent Training.
