Boat Handling

I've been sailing small boats all my life and more recently started sailing yachts and power boats.

There is no greater feeling than sailing a boat close to the wind, leaning out as far as you can to maintain balance, with wind in one hand and water in the other.

I regularly skipper safety boats RIBs for sailing races and water-based events. I qualified for my powerboat license in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland.
