      I have been sailing in these water for many years, but was on Selkie for the first time - a good boat with a hugely experienced skipper who is also a great cook.

Professional Development… What Fun!

I have been sailing for 21 years now. I leapt into the deep end of the sailing world with a voyage in Greenland and then a season in the Southern Oceans around the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica. Not the usual route in, but it certainly inspired me,...
