Born in St Albans in the UK, Greg started sailing from the age of 10 and gained his RYA Offshore Yachtmaster (Commercially Endorsed) qualification when he was just 18 years of age. Greg has worked on a number of different boats, including North Sea hydrographic survey boats, undertaking sea trials on Round The World Challenge boats and as the delivery skipper on a wide variety of boats to different Mediterranean locations. He also spent several seasons as a flotilla skipper in Greece and Croatia, gaining his Cruising Instructors qualification along the way.
Greg is a qualified PADI Dive Master. Diving is allowed from the yacht for certified divers at a small additional cost. The underwater environment is a beautiful but fragile one and he supports the PADI AWARE project which seeks to conserve the underwater environment for others to enjoy.
