Keen sailor, sailing for 11 years and wishing I'd started much sooner! Done a lot of racing in this short time but also love cruising port to port and exploring local towns and tavernas... Live in the Midlands so my regular fix is on my Laser, but regularly on week-long regattas every June (private one on Beneteau 37s - Fairview), weekends such as Round the Island Race 2017 and 2018 and Cowes St Malo (First 40) in 2017. Also went over to Antigua for the RORC Caribbean 600 (First 40) in February 2018 and Voiles De Saint Tropez in September 2018 on Jeanneau 57. Cowes Week on a couple of classic boats 2019, RORC Caribbean 600 2018 and again in Feb 2020. Also some double-handed racing in 2018, cruising on a 45’ cat Florida to Bahamas Jan and Feb 2021. I’m also a professional photographer and I was commissioned to make an advert for a flotilla company in the Ionian in 2019. Link on request.
