I'm looking forward to being out on the water with the crew of Oceans of Hope on this fantastic journey.

Between 2004 and 2010 I was skipper on board MY Big Smile extensively cruising the mediterranean sea. During this time i was very rarely 50 miles offshore, so the thought of being 1500 miles offshore with Oceans of Hope us both very exciting and scary!

The timing of OOH coming into my life was perfect. Mikkel and his team turned up at Brighton marina on a fact finding visit. i was on duty as Marina Manager that day and was immediately inspired. Now, eight months after that first meeting I have just given up work to be part of your adventure.

Sailing Sclerosis has re ignited a passion for adventure and new experiences that had been quashed since my first episode and subsequent diagnosis. Life is too short to be paralysed by the uncertainty that comes with MS. Oceans of Hope has given me the inspiration and belief that anything is possible again.
