About Me:

I have been divorced for many years, but despite being a retired detective inspector, I have still not yet caught that special lady!

I am easygoing, sincere and romantic. I think that at our tender age it’s time to relax, have fun and make the most of life. I am also generous and caring. And I could keep you entertained for hours with stories of my time in the Met.

Sailing is my passion. I have been a sailor all my life and have built several boats myself. I have a yacht at a marina near Narbonne and spend my summers sailing in the Med, together with friends on their own boats. Would you like to accompany me? Your own comfortable cabin awaits ...

On a practical side, I have two houses, one near Carcassonne, France and one in the Cotswolds, UK. I am very good at DIY and can repair anything from a broken chair to a Diesel engine. I am also quite a good cook, even if I say so myself!

I am very fit and athletic, and love to go for walks and cycle rides. While enjoying good food and wine, I do keep an eye on my waistline. I also like good music and, be warned, I have a set of bagpipes and sometimes play them!

I have still not given up hope to meet someone for companionship and maybe more. So, if you like the sound of me, please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!

Sailing Experience:

I started with friends sailing in the mid sixties. I built my own boat in the seventies and regularly sailed in the Solent, western approaches and across the Chanel. That lasted for 30 years. I stopped when I moved to France. The pleasure of sailing did not go away. In consequence I now have a boat in a marina near Narbonne. For the past five years sailing in the Golf du Lion. The Balearic Islands , Cote d'Azure, Corsica and Sardinia.
