I have raced yachts since the age of 7, from dinghies to maxi yachts, competing in long offshore races to national and international regattas, so to say I like yachting would be an understatement! I spent 8 years as an officer in the British Army and two seasons as a Skipper on Oysters in the UK and Balearics, so I am well trained in hard work and being organised! These days things have calmed down and I am settled with a wife and three children. My sailing is more sedate to suit the family with a 21 foot Cornish Shrimper and a RIB. After 16 years as a Charter Broker one of the things I enjoy about Y.CO is that so many of the team feel as passionate about sailing as I do, something which is surprisingly rare in our industry!
