Journalism

My first article was written in 1987 when I was away cruising. It was accepted by a small paper. I then had the courage to offer a piece to Yachting Monthly. They liked it, bought it and the rest, as they say, is history. I’ve been employed by them on a freelance basis ever since. I’ve written for most of the yachting magazines in the UK and also those in France, Germany, Holland, America and Australia. A sideline to the journalism is writing brochures for firms, such as Fairlie Restorations (www.fairlierestorations.com). Occasionally, foreign companies will ask me to have a look at the English version of their brochure and if necessary to make it more readable. If you’d like an article from me, please contact me via the form.
