Dear reader, I don't work for delivery companies, I only deliver private yachts either as the captain or as the owners crew. I am happy to give sailing and power boat skippering and docking lessons and on long deliveries I routinely perform maintenance on smaller vessels as required, or over see the engineers on larger vessels. I take my captaining very seriously and as of yet not lost a boat or soul, or damaged a boat in anyway.

Below are paid deliveries and captaining jobs. Normally paid by the mile with expenses.

Dear reader. 

These are some of the captaining and cruising trips I have done. There are many more races and trips I have either forgotten or seem insignificant at the moment. Please note that every boat I have worked on has had a sea trial which normally involves a full survey and evaluation of the sea worthiness of the vessel and systems on board.

I have worked on hundreds of boats.
