About Me:

I've been sailing since I was 2 years old. I sailed the north and west coats of France and Spain with my father for 30 years from 1950-1980. I have crewed and raced in small and large dinghies and keel boats on the south coast of England and in West Africa. I have also sailed the Mediterranean coasts of Greece, France and Spain and the Caribbean Sea. Since 2002 I have owned my own swingkeel 44 foot yacht now berthed on the Hamble and have cruised from the UK to Holland, Belgium and France.

Sailing Experience:

Cruising and racing all kinds of craft over very many years. In Lagos Nigeria I sailed the Badagry race, the longest (65 miles) inshore sailing race in the world in my own boat and raced almost every weekend for 3 years.
But my most extensive experience is cruising.

Sailing Qualfications:

Belgian qualifications in the French language 'Brevet de Yachtman' which is roughly equivalent to the RYA theory course.

Nautical Miles Logged:
Tens of thousands of miles!
