My Sailing Background

I have been very lucky in having water and sailing involved in my life almost since I was born.

My first 2 years were spent in a house beside a large river in Ottawa, Canada, where we sailed on my dad’s home made dinghy.

After that we moved to Turkey and had a number of sailing holidays and adventures on chartered boats.

I went to school in Dover for my O and A levels, where I learned to race dinghies, dodging ferries and hovercrafts.

I had a lot more sailing in the Med in my teens, which included a brief stint working for Sunsail in Turkey.

I cruised and raced with my Dad in Hong Kong and then British Columbia.
