I learnt to sail in dinghies, on local lakes. I then cruised with my sailing mentor, Don for 3 glorious weeks on the West Coast of Scotland. At the end of that summer we sailed Don’s Jeannau Sun Legend back from Scotland to North Wales. So hooked had I become by the end of this that nothing else would suffice but my own boat. So it came to be that I became owner and skipper of “Dansa” and the process of becoming a sailor began.
At times it was a steep learning curve, but learn I did. Soon I was cruising farther and farther afield and I circumnavigated Ireland in 2004. Some of my cruises are undertaken solo, other with friends. Some of these adventures I have put on Dansa’s site
Dansa is now sold and Sea Bear has taken her place.
Before sailing I sent most of my time climbing and as a fully qualified mountain guide I have climbed and trekked in many parts of the world. You could say that adventure and travelling is in my blood.
