The Skipper


Hi, I’m Ted… an experienced professional skipper looking forward to sharing the best sailing in Southern Italy with you.

I have over 15 years experience sailing yachts in the UK, Mediterranean, Europe and Caribbean including a Atlantic crossing ten years ago.  Italy is my favourite destination by a mile. Fantastic local ingredients and simple food, reliable sunshine, crystal clear warm water, friendly laid back locals, an amazingly rich history and culture, and a stunning coastline combine to create a perfect sailing holiday.  I fell in love with this amazing part of Italy and been sailing here for the past five years. In 2017 I left my job as a project manager for a charity in London to pursue my dream.

I have a friendly, relaxed approach and love sharing the best of this Mediterranean paradise with guests.  I know the coastline very well and can take you to the best anchorages, snorkelling and swimming spots, dolphin spotting areas and restaurants. I am happy to teach guests how to sail  and I am also good at keeping out of the way and leaving plenty of space for you to enjoy the boat. I have had an amazing first season with great feedback from very happy guests.

You are in safe hands – I am a commercially endorsed RYA Yachtmaster, freediver and PADI Divemaster. Oh Susannah has been coded for commercial charter in 2017 meeting the highest British marine safety standards. I speak Italian and am happy to help out with booking taxis and travel advice.
