Course Studied: Marine Engineering & Design BTEC Nationals Programme
I base my life around my love for water. I have always loved working on fishing boats and around boats. After completing the course at Falmouth Marine School I went on to gain more qualifications including a Yacht Master Offshore, RYA Power Boat Level 1 & 2 as well as PADI Advanced Diver.
I have worked on various vessels, both modern and traditional sailing yachts up to 305ft and worked my way up from deck hand and engineer to 1st mate and Captain.
In 2007 I was Captain of a 72ft Mini maxi, Gitana. I ran the boat along with one full time mate and chef, sailing in and around the Caribbean, Long Island, Newport, Martha's Vineyard and New York. I am currently working on the rebuild project of a 41ft sailing boat in LA and once completed will sail it to the UK for refitting.
My course at Falmouth Marine School gave me the foundations for the fantastic career I am enjoying now.
