- About Me:
Friendly, sociable, active and fit.
I am the owner of a beautiful, blue water, Nicholson 32, built in 1969.
I'm an amateur performing musician. Ask me for a link to my music.
Have two grown up sons.
Actively encourage others to participate in getting afloat.
I started water sports in kayaks when I was a Boy Sprout in my teens then progressed to sailing dinghies. I became an instructor at an RYA centre in Essex, UK. After a break, I've owned a couple of 32 foot sailing boats. I've restored and owned my Nicholson 32 for eleven years.
I enjoy cruising as well as racing, sometimes on old gaffers owned by friends.
The IOW Round the Island Race is a favourite. Also the classic rallies and regattas to which my classic yacht is invited.
Looking to the future and hoping to sail further, possibly Africa.
Currently I run a community boat building project for children and adults which is proving very popular. We're building four St Ayles skiffs initially and we are encouraging other towns in this region to do similar.
