My name's Mike or Mick.
Nice to join such a great bunch of people on a great site.
Not sailed on yachts for some time but was trained during my time in the services firstly on Enterprise Dinghies followed by crewing
on a 40ft sloop
owned by the services. All a long time ago but always remembered with great affection.
career and time at college, went into The Merchant Navy
and served as Radio
Officer eventualy ending up in dual role functioning in both the Radio
departments. Great experience which took me all over the world on just about every type of commercial
vessel. Redundancy eventualy ensued but itchy-feet made me take up teaching English
so ended up in various locations in South East Asia
Since returning decided to complete a few related courses eg. First Aid, DSC
