Started sailing a Laser on holiday when 45. Enjoyed it and bought a second hand one which I sailed for a few years. When I was 50 I did a comp crew following a trip on a tall ship.

On the0 comp crew I was the only novice and we went to Poole and Weymouth from the Solent. I loved it.

I've done the RYA scheme to Coastal skipper. RTI 3 times, 4 channel crossings, 1 as a bare boat skipper.

Last year (2013) I made an impulse purchase of Venezia, a Hunter Legend 33, which I sail out of Weymouth.

Golf, bridge, photography.
Me North Dorset. Venezia in Portland.
Telecoms engineer. Ex Royal Signals.
