A down to earth mariner with a great sense of humour, John is renowned for his refreshingly original 'plain language' teaching methods. After going to sea 'under sail' at the age of 12, he followed an early career as a merchant navy navigating officer before returning to home waters to pass on his innovative navigation and seamanship techniques to leisure sailors. During his 25 year stint at the helm of Southern Sailing School his training films and eminently-practical illustrated contributions to national sailing magazines earned him worldwide recognition and a Fellowship of the Royal Institute of Navigation. A senior RYA Yachtmaster examiner, John is now concentrating on putting his numerous 'timeless' articles and video programmes into booklet and DVD formats.
