Sailing History

2002Present

Manager and Joint Owner

Island Dreams Yacht Services Inc., Camper & Nicholson Port Louis Marina, Grenada, West Indies

Island Dreams Yacht Services Inc. specialises in maintenance and care of yachts (sail and power) generally between 15-25 metres in length.

In the course of my work I have sailed (as Captain), hauled and launched many different vessels in the Caribbean, primarily in Grenada and The Grenadines. These include: Hylas 54 and 56; Oyster 46, 56, 62, 66, 82; Swan 43, 57 and 61; Lagoon 50 and 620; Privilege 615. Generally these have been short trips either delivery to/from the boat yard (say 5-10 miles) and test sails for maintenance purposes.
