About Me:

Over the years I have had a variety of experiences and professions including 15 years in the merchant navy as a navigating officer. I have been away from the sea for some time, but over the past 10 or so years I have been sailing a friend's catamaran and finally decided to buy my own in 2014. I sold this dog of a cat in 2017 and purchased another cat in September 2018. I have been sailing her around this area after doing some upgrades and am now hoping to head out to the islands near here and possibly out to the canaries for the winter. Will need crew for that trip. Please don't make any assumptions about age - it's just a number and I consider myself as fit as most people 20 years my junior! Just don't ask me to run anywhere!

Sailing Experience:

I learned to sail on the Bristol Channel when I was about 13 and sailed sporadically until I went to sea at 18. I returned to sailing later in an open day boat which father kept moored in Brixham for the summer months. It was then a number of years before I resumed when a cousin bought a small catamaran and after sailing that I decided that catamaran sailing was a better bet than a mono hull. It is only when at the helm at sea that true happiness is achieved.
