I have been involved with the sport of Radio / Vane Sailing for over 30 years. Its more of a past time than a career as my profession is being a Submariner within the Royal Navy. I have a professional profile situated on the site 'Linkedin', for those who want to view.


Additionally to this I have enjoyed some success whilst racing in this sport.

Portugese (IOM) Champion 1996 & 1997.
Australian (RA Class) Champion 2005.
Malta (IOM) Champion 2007.

Also competed and represented the UK in the following:

(RM) European Championships (Finland) in 1991.
(IOM) European Championships (Fleetwood) in 1996.
(RM) World Championships (Fleetwood) in 2006.
(IOM) World Championships (Israel) in 2013.
