Delivery Skipper: Qualified and Experienced

Autumn is nearly upon us.....

Are you looking to move your boat back to its winter pastures?
Perhaps buying a boat and need a hand moving it to the Caribbean or simply 'back home'?

Commanding Officer/Executive Officer/Navigation Officer with decades of global seamanship and small boat operations around the world
●RYA Yachtmaster: Experienced in planning, equipping, leading and instructing sail training expeditions in the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, and Gibraltar.
●Instructor in: Leadership/Navigation/Meteorology/Oceanography/Sailing and Power Boat to the Royal Navy.
●St Barts Yacht Sales, Charleston. Hired as Sailboat expert to broker new and used Beneteau's as well as all other makes of sail and power boats. Instructing new owners in sailing, navigation, maritime regulations and sailing etiquette.

Safety Equipment & Communications:

I carry my own satellite communications when offshore, which allows:
1) Text conversation to/from land to a group of email addresses or phone numbers
2) Offshore Weather forecasts download
3) It also sends a position update at set intervals. This keeps you, your family & friends in touch with where we are, and through text conversation.


Conclusion:

Every delivery is different, and I am always available to discuss your delivery or training needs. Some people need their boat sailed across the harbor, 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

Non-smoker, no drinking (at sea) policy

Drop me a line and I can send you my full resume and we can set up a video conversation and start discussing what we can do
