Hi, I'm Rob!
I’m a highly qualified RYA Offshore Yachtmaster and professional SCUBA divemaster. I have worked within and tangentially to the sailing industry for over 5 years. There is nothing in the world I enjoy doing more than sharing my love of sailing and the sea with others. I have a great passion for the sea and what I do, and I express that through the core values of Vagabond Sailing and the way I live my life. I am fully licensed and capable of sailing my boat alone but enjoy getting my guest crew involved in the action.
I gain huge personal satisfaction from seeing my guest crew enjoy their time aboard the yacht, teaching them to sail so that they too can experience the thrill of handling a large yacht at sea whilst enjoying life and the beauty of nature in stunning locations.
Over the last few years I have traveled the world and sailed thousands of miles in all conditions from squalls to cyclones. My adventures have taken me through the Mediterranean, Aegean, Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Andaman, Caribbean, Atlantic and the Coral Sea. I've worked as a private yacht captain for clients and for specialist sailing holiday firms in France, the Caribbean and Belize.
I look forward to taking you on a wonderful sailing adventure!
