Dan has been sailing with us at Hamble Point Sailing School over the last few years and has worked with incredible focus and determination to progress through his awards and build his miles and experience on the water.
Speaking about his time with us Dan commented:
‘Thanks for all your help over the last couple of years which has been leading up to me getting my Yachtmaster Offshore Award. First-rate service both on the sailing school and chartering side. Looking forward to taking more boats out and going on more sailing ventures with you guys next year!’

We first met Dan following a corporate charter of Seafin and a sailing event in 2018. It’s been fantastic seeing his love for sailing grow and his commitment to achieving all his aspirations. Following his corporate day onboard Seafin our luxury 72ft motor yacht Dan joined Hamble Point Sailing School and undertook his Competent Crew, working up to his Yachtmaster Offshore Award in 2019. Chartering from us to gain further experience, hone his skills and gain miles on the water.
Dan has gone on to use his sailing skills taking part in The Round the Island race and training in June 2019 with Team Tigress on board ‘Olympia’s Tigress’ a performance racer-cruiser Beneteau First 40. Sailing on home turf and sharing the Solent with professionals and some of the most advanced racing yachts out there. (further racing opportunities can be found here)
Dan’s most recent achievement has been something quite fantastic- crossing an ocean on a small boat! Whilst taking part in the Transatlantic ARC he sailed 2700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia from December into the New Year.
Dan’s story fills us with joy, seeing our customer’s love for sailing grow and being a part of that journey is exactly what we are all about!
