About Me:

Skipper of an old Falmouth Pilot. Easy going explorer with a tendency to coddiwomple (v. 'to purposefully travel towards an as-yet-unknown destination.') Well, maybe the journey itself is the point! I like a slow pace to life, but rise to the challenge when required. Reckon it''s better to explore the creeks and towns than blast by and miss them all together. Besides, as Annie Hill said: 'the best part is the people you meet along the way.'
Each to their own.
Love sailing.
Love life.

Sailing Experience:

Over 12 years on a wide range of yachts from cats to old fishing boats. Mainly coastal, but also one sea crossed, so far...

Sailing Qualfications:

Day skipper. Studying for an ICC.

Apr 1, 2019

Hiya! I'm looking to *slowly* sail the Wild Atlantic Way off the west coast of Ireland in Spring/Summer 2019. My little boat is a classic Falmouth Pilot and I usually travel alone, but I'm open to somebody joining me this year. Currently based less than an hour from Cork airport. Novice or…

Looking for Self-Steering Gear

Hi!

I'm looking for a self-steering system for my 25ft yacht. Navik, Aries, Hydrovane, Hebribean, or other considered. Looking for both wind vane and autohelm. Working on a budget, so will consider most things, but top-notch and brand new not in my price range.

Thank you.
