I’m a shipwright and currently training as a commercial coxswain. I live on and sail my own 39 foot Moody Grenadier 119. My training was in traditional wooden boat building, but now I mostly work on GRP boats and doing teak deck refurbs.
I'm looking to build miles and knowledge for my Yachtmaster. So far I've done lots of trips off the South East coast of England, lasting two to five days, pottering and learning from a really great teacher, in their boat as well as skippering my own. Ive also spent lots of time cruising and exploring south coast of Cornwall, and trips out into the Solent from my home berth of Southsea. I completed my Coastal Skipper at Commodore Yachting in Gosport, sailing out in The Solent, learning the exciting tides and busy lanes there. I was been 1st mate on a 10 day trip from Falmouth to the Isles of Scilly, exploring all the different places and sleeping on the boat.

Summer 2016 saw my partner and I charter a Beneteau Cyclades 39 in Brazil and spent 8 days sailing around Ilha Grande, Paraty, and Angra dos Reis - fantastic experience!

February 2017 sailing in the Caribbean - St Vincent and the Grenadines with a group of friends.

May 2018 bought my own classic wooden yacht - a 1953 Burmese teak 28 foot Fred Parker sailing yacht. My partner and I spent the summer stripping her back, fixing her up, installing an electrical system and lots and lots of varnishing!

July 2019 I sold up and bought the Moody, bringing her up to spec and preparing her to go on journeys further afield.

I'm very handy, having renovated my house mostly by myself, and used to working 12 - 14 hour shifts on low sleep levels. Definitely not afraid of hard work, and enjoy a good laugh afterwards.

Good company and respectful of people's space and privacy.
