A personalised service to help you go sailing at an appropriate price.


I have sailed since a teenager. For the last few years I have been working as a professional yacht skipper and events organiser and have learnt what works well. I love talking with people about how a sailing day can work and what you can achieve from it so that we can tailor it to meet your requirements.

Crucially then as skipper I am part of the sailing day to ensure we deliver what you want. Seeing guests and hosts leaving the yacht so excited about what they have achieved in the day is extremely satisfying – especially having seen them arrive quite apprehensive sometimes.


Sailing and boats can be a mystery to many people and yet it is a brilliant activity to do with friends or for corporate and team building events. I have experienced sailing as a corporate host, as a corporate guest, out with friends, racing, on sailing courses, as a skipper and also as an organiser of the days. This has given me a unique insight into all aspects of the sailing event.


I am flexible on how much you get involved – some people want to do a lot of ‘hands on’ sailing, others want to relax and enjoy the atmosphere without doing too much.

Qualifications and Experience

I have the appropriate commercially endorsed Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructor qualifications. My corporate background means I understand corporate hospitality and team building goals and the need for value. Also the importance of creating a relaxing, enjoyable and fun atmosphere on the boat. I have sailed with friends and family so understand those goals too!

I have crossed the channel numerous times as crew and skipper. I have several ‘round the island’ sails under my belt too – of the annual race and just casually. As a teenager I learnt to sail and race on dinghies.


I have crewed and skippered in many racing events – Cowes Week, Round the Island (1800 boats), Hamble Winter Series, numerous regattas and plenty of informal fun racing. I have seen how quality teams are built through racing and I have been part of it. I never forget the apprehension, the exhilaration, the focus and competitive spirit and I want to share that.


I want you and your guests or friends/family to enjoy every aspect of your sailing trip and I want you to come back. I never forget that I need to make your day a memorable, fun and safe one. I want you as host/organiser to enjoy your day and not be stressed about the organisation. I will do all I can to help. I hope that you will love sailing itself and that you will want to recommend a sailing day with me to colleagues and friends.
