Born in South Devon in 1986, I have sailed as long as I can remember. Starting with competitively racing dinghies and occasionally on racing keelboats at regattas, I then decided in a gap year from University to try and crew on yacht deliveries, from that initial introduction to offshore sailing I have never looked back and a career in yachting has resulted.

From 2010-2012, I was crew on Pelagic Australis, a 72.5ft expedition yacht based in the Falklands, with Miles and Laura Wise. After these two amazing seasons including trips supporting ski touring expeditions, a film charter as well as adventure tourism, I have caught the “Southern Ocean bug” and can think of nowhere I would prefer to be. Having visited numerous fascinating destinations in the Southern Ocean including South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula, the Beagle Channel and Cape Horn, I have a wealth of experience in this area.  

I am a commercially endorsed Ocean Yachtmaster with Ship Captain's Medical qualification allowing me to captain MCA Cat 0 vessels anywhere in the world.
