Great guy & professional sailor


Sailed with Rob on an Atlantic Crossing last year on a Neel 51. Rob is a great personality to have on board, creating a really good vibe & with plenty of interesting stories. As a sailor he is very meticulous & 100% knows what he is doing. You're lucky if the applies to sail your ship or be on board with you. Hope to sail with him again in the future!

Professional and meticulous


Rob is a consummate professional to have onboard. We hired Rob to help us on our journey from Lisbon to the Canary Islands on our new Amel60, and we can highly recommend him if you’re looking for a dependable, competent and experienced crew member.

Professional and safety conscious Skipper


I had the pleasure of sharing captain duties with Rob in May/June 2023 on an Alden 54 which had just completed a major refit. Rob extremely competent in all aspects of skippering, has a strong focus on safety, and has excellent boat handling skills in close quarters (eg. berthing). He is a meticulous planner especially when it comes to weather and pilotage. Rob would be a great asset to any boat! I look forward to sailing with him again in the future.
