I started sailing aged 14 with the school’s sailing club. After a long break, I got back into sailing when my wife and I bought a Seal 22. In recent years we have got involved in dinghy racing with Laser 2, Fireball and Wayfarers.
I set up the dinghy cruising section with Geoff Evans which meets on a Wednesday night.
We purchased Kabouter (Trapper 26) and then traded up to Lone Star (Beneteau First 325) four years ago.
We do some yacht racing but mainly enjoy cruising (usually in company).
I am married to Caroline and have three children and four grandchildren.
My eldest daughter Samantha is a cadet senior instructor (currently on maternity leave).
Caroline and I are regular safety boat drivers on Tuesday nights.
My primary focus in the club is making sure the IT and all things complicated work.
I have lots of DIY pursuits including 3D printing, CNC, welding, and woodworking. Chris Randall says I have a high ‘nerd score’ whatever that means!
