"I have been sailing for most of my life, and love teaching too. I have taught young sailors on Sail Training vessels, and adults at many different levels of skills – I am proud of the reputation I have established as a confident, competent skipper/instructor who is popular with students – as our feedback on our website confirms. Safety is one of my primary areas of focus on yachts – teaching people to love the sea and enjoy sailing responsibly. I’m never more at home than when I’m on a boat, and I look forward to welcoming you aboard!"
