Q: What’s your worst boating experience? Man over board in the middle of the Pacific.

Q: How long have you been boating and what made you start? I have been sailing recreationally and professionally for many years.

Q: What are your sailing ambitions? What’s the next challenge? While I have excellent navigations skills, I continuously strive to improve my abilities and look forward to learning the sextant.

Q: Where’s your favourite boating destination? Christmas Island in Kiribati

Q: What is your favourite boat and why? STS "Fryderyk Chopin", Everyone should try sailing on STS Tall Ships because I love the challenge of climbing high masts.

Q: What’s your funniest experience? One time I was swimming toward the yacht without being aware of a shark fast approaching. I made it into the yacht shaking, but safe. I now consider it to be a very humorous story to tell.

Q: What is it about being on the water that makes you tick? From freedom of being upon the water to the challenges the sea can offer.

Q: Gin and Tonic in a beautiful anchorage or trimming the sails to get an extra half knot? I don't drink any alcohol. You'll find me trimming the sails
