    Above all I am a sailor but am also renown for my talents as a Steward/Cook, Diver, First Mate, photographer, artist and educator. But in the end I am a simple seaman through and through. I am a professional and my services are not free nor am I in need to seeing the world by sea. I have done so already. I am seeking paid work and deliver a devoted and disciplined contribution to any vessel in need of a good salt. I am seeking to join a crew aboard a vessel peopled by positive, optimistic and successful voyagers whose passion, happiness and love for the sea is their primary reason for sailing and cruising. We are all human and the seafaring variety I find is the best of the human lot, tenacious, hard-working, but also great lovers of life and laughter and camaraderie and working together to arrive at a chosen port of call or voyage of simple recreation. I am compiling a book of photographic images of the world's oceans and ports of call from my photographic collection. I am also a devoted conversationalist when invited to partake in repartee with my clients, but have no problem keeping to myself and out of sight and sound if that be the client's preference and am well tuned to my Captain's and families needs. I am very knowledgable about wine and can assure you your palate will be continually surprised and delighted with my culinary skills combined with insightful wine pairings. I am an Open Water Certified Diver and have worked with dive groups in the past in the Florida Keys beyond my own diving experiences throughout the Caribbean and Hawaii. I am very fit and have just been given a fantastic physical with even great cholesterol counts which shocks a cook like me! Absolutely in tip top shape. I long ago learned that in this life there is little reason in pursuing anything for any other reason than honest to goodness love and passion. I grew up surrounded by and swaddled by the sea. I have spent a great amount of time upon the world's oceans, lakes, rivers, seas and know in my heart of hearts that there is simply nowhere on land that affords me the sense of place and meaning I derive from being at one with the ocean and sky aboard a seagoing vessel and preferably with happy souls in tow. Recently single, I am once more free to pursue my truest passion and that is to be aboard any seaworthy vessel in the company of good, happy people, making the adventure of life worth all the hard work and effort. I am hard working, but fun loving and playful. I think the sea brings out the best in us. I know I am at my best when upon it.

Boat for Charter »

Looking to charter a boat for pleasure or racing..


Siriana - Lymington, Hampshire

Nimbus 340 Commander

The Nimbus 340 Commander is available on FlexiSail's Motor Cruiser membership and corporate membership scheme, a fantastic alternative to chartering. Our FlexiAnytime membership shares the time on a motor yacht between a small number of members (1 owner plus a maximum of 6 members). This gives each member the equivalent to 6 weeks or 42 days per year sailing, which is more than enough for most of us! We offer 2 alternative schemes for further flexibility - our long weekend orientated ‘FlexiWeekender' membership and our ‘FlexiMidweeker' membership for midweek sailing; If you have previously chartered do you remember the anxiety beforehand not knowing quite what to expect on arrival and therefore what you need to bring with you? With FlexiSail you are a member on the one boat – one you are totally comfortable and familiar with and which is fully kitted out with everything that you will need right down to a corkscrew! FlexiSail is in fact the closest you can get to owning a boat. You know exactly what to bring each time (just your wet weather gear, food and drink, and bedding if overnighting), and you are safe in the knowledge that the boat will be clean, welcoming and ready to enjoy. Siriana has a low centre of gravity and large flybridge you can cruise in comfort, enjoying the power knowing that every safety aspect has been considered. Siriana’s specification includes a bow and stern thruster, heating and demisting, radar. She cruises at 16 knots with a top speed of 22 knots. Coded for 8 category 2 (60 miles offshore), Siriana sleeps 6 in a large master double cabin, aft double cabin and a double saloon conversion Contact details info@flexisail.com +44(0) 1590 688008 http://www.flexisail.com
