Hi I live In Cowes Isle of Wight have spent the last 25 yrs sailing racing around the Solent area and across the channel to France I have owned a F 27 trimaran for four years and sailed this on coastal passages around the Solent area having sold this boat I have now purchased a racing trimaran which I am using for racing in the Cowes area. I have always wanted to go on longer passages so now that I have more time on my hands I would like to cross the Atlantic and explore further afield I have an easy-going personality and do not get in a flap when things don’t go as planned. Coming from a farming background I have a make do and mend attitude to any breakdowns.
