Alex began sailing at a young age, trying his hand at everything from dinghies to 50’ monohulls. He grew up in Bath in the southwest of the UK, but after school, he moved to Greece to work as a qualified sailing instructor and flotilla skipper.
Throughout his yachting career, Alex gained significant charter experience while working on some of the most popular and prestigious yachts which include BATON ROUGE and FLAG. He travelled extensively throughout the Mediterranean and US/Caribbean, working his way from Deckhand to Chief Officer and finally achieving his Master 3000 and becoming a Captain.
