I have been in the yachting industry for 35 years and during which time have Captained large yachts all over the world and to many remote places and have amassed in excess off over 500,000 Nautical miles, I have supervised the construction of the 52 meter sailing yacht Red Dragon in New Zealand.
I am a qualified diving instructor and have been lucky enough to show people some incredible underwater paradises all over the world. I have been based with A1 in Greece now for one and half years back in a country where I started my sailing career in 1979.
