Circumnavigation sailor, freelance writer and media specialist, Dave spends his time onboard his sailing boat SV Sänna together with his long suffering wife Marie. They are currently sailing around the world eastwards from the UK and are now in Caribbean Colombia. Dave records and writes about their voyage, their humorous experiences, tragedies and the spectacular locations visited by Sänna and her intrepid crew…

With over sixty thousand miles of ocean sailing, including cold-water voyaging in the northern Baltic and Gulf of Finland, Dave is a qualified Yachtmaster holding numerous RYA sailing and navigation qualifications.

Dave’s none-sailing experience includes climbing, trekking and skiing in Scandinavia, Iceland, Russia, the Alps and Scotland. In between Dave has owned two successful UK and Scandinavian based companies involved in marketing communications and specialist cold weather construction.

You can read more about their circumnavigational voyage by visiting the Sänna website and their circumnavigation sail blog. You can also follow Dave’s social comment blogging on this site… which have in the past been described as “very interesting but usually irrelevant” and leave your comments…
