Having rebuilt and sailed my own boat for several years and across the Atlantic I developed a profound knowledge of Yacht systems. My Ocean sailing has taught me a high level of respect for the elements and it also built my knowledge and grew my passion.
Today I am a dedicated delivery skipper having the privilege of skippering a variety of vessels across the seas.
I enjoy all aspects of Yacht care as much as I do sailing.
When working as a skipper I always want my crew to have fun while doing their jobs. At the same time I want everything to be organized and I like a job done properly. Having owned my own boat I know how how much good care for the vessel means to the owner.
