- I have finally managed to cut most of my responsibilities on land and am now looking to live a more independent life.
I started sailing Optimists and graduated to racing Lazers. Later I did RYA courses in the Solent and this has helped me find a new way of appreciating life.
After a break for marriage/kids/business/divorce, I feel that I have had enough of living on land and need to scratch my itchy feet.
Finished my education at Drama School specializing in Technical Theatre.
Toured Australia with a band and learned to dive on the Barrier Reef. Got hooked on diving!
Landed a plum theatrical job in the Caribbean and also worked as a (NAUI) Divemaster/Instructor on the islands where I learned to drive a 50' dive-boat.
Spent 15 years as motorcycle instructor/trainer back in the UK.
Got ill and had to surrender my driving licence....
I have been in and out of hospital for the past few years and, after the all-clear, am ready to go on a new adventure. Whilst in recovery i learned about performing and also care of my instrument. I consider myself to be almost fit again and hope to use these skills to part finance a new life afloat.
My ambitions - *Learn* to sail in the Bristol Channel (because of the brutal water movement there)..... Circumnavigate UK with no time constraints..... Visit the Med (because I have never been there). After that, the world is my clam.
