Jim Dobie - RYA Ocean Master, Yachtmaster Examiner and Instructor, 150,000Nm

With over 20 years in the yachting industry and recent completion of a course in Marine Surveying, I have a comprehensive understanding of yacht systems, crew management, maintenance and of course my skills as a professional skipper. I am a specialist in sailing yachts and have worked on a variety of Superyachts including Philanderer, Parsifal, Swan and Oyster luxury yachts. As well as these luxury brands, I am a yacht racing specialist and can advise on training, safety, equipment, and my technical expertise for race events. I offer my services as a consultant and yacht manager to clients who require expert advice and guidance. My unique skill includes yacht safety having been published in Yachting Monthly, and other publications; Yacht training, as I am a RYA Examiner and Yachtmaster Instructor, and managed the training of nearly 2000 yacht race crew, mates and skippers for two cycles of the Clipper Round the World Yacht race as Chief Instructor. Yacht skipper, with over 150,000NM, two global circumnavigations (once as a Clipper Round the World Race Skipper) and apart from the poles I have sailed in every ocean and region of the world. I am an expert delivery skipper and in an emergency, can solve problems quickly.
