I am a Commercial Skipper that has sailed in the role of both skipper and first mate in numerous locations, mainly on delivery yachts, including both North and South Atlantic, the Med and around the Caribbean and BVI’s as well as the UK. I have also worked on ‘high end’ charter boats and done some yacht racing. My current employment has ended due to Coronavirus and i’m taking this opportunity to extend my sailing knowledge by joining other boats and hopefully sailing in new locations.
