Likes to think of himself (that’s him on the left) as a really good ‘natural’ sailor, who could have been in the Olympics if he’d taken it up sooner – or wasn’t so well packed with ballast. When not sailing, he’s busy day dreaming about sailing and fantasising about his abilities thereof. Sailing history – several bare boat trips to Turkey – generally what lacks in wind is made up for with Raki and diving off the bow into gorgeous blue waters. Has also chartered several boats on the Solent, including skippering around the island in May 2012 and aboard his own restored Cutlass 27 in 2016. Sailing ambitions – Given the massively boosted confidence in Windchat following her incredible ability in the high winds and big seas of the 2016 RTIR, to sail further afield in her, hopefully soon with his first mate (pictured). Generally mucking about on boats as much as possible.
