Paul started sailing over 25 years ago with a short introduction to sailing course in the Mediterranean, and became hooked. He decided that he needed to know a little more about what he was doing Paul then completed the shorebased and practical courses with York Cruiser Training Centre before qualifying as a Yachtmaster Offshore some 10 years later.
During this time various crossings of the channel were interspersed with end of season deliveries in the Mediterranean, North Sea Crossings and trips up the Irish Sea.
For 12 years he was a member of a syndicate that owned a Bavaria 36 followed by a Bavaria Vision 40 based in Troon and cruised the Clyde and west coast of Scotland. Throughout his entire sailing career he has sailed on various boats based in Whitby, racing around the bay and along the coast in the club handicap fleet. Paul currently owns a half share in a Hunter 27 OOD in Whitby.
