Every delivery is different, and I am always available to discuss your delivery or training needs. Some people need their boat sailed across the harbour, some require delivery over thousands of miles, some people are looking to get used to a boat they have just bought, and to get to grips with the Rule of The Road, etiquette and logistical world that boaters live in!

Owners/friends are welcome to attend as crew
Rates and terms dependent on the requirement

Safety Equipment & Communications:

I carry my own satellite communications, which allow text conversation to/from land and can be set up to automatically send a position update at set intervals to a group of email addresses or phone numbers. This keeps you, your family & friends in touch with where we are, and through text conversation.
Generally I carry two offshore 'hazardous duty' lifejackets, two strobes, two sets of body harnesses and tails.
