In 2008 I realized my life-long ambition to own a boat. I sold my house, found the boat of my dreams, and embarked on an adventure voyage around the UK and then across the Bay of Biscay to Spain. After a suitable number of trials and tribulations I arrived in the wonderful city of Barcelona.
In Barcelona, the seed of an idea grew. People seemed to love sailing on Gemini just as much as I did. So now I make a living sharing my passion for old boats and spending time on the water. It wasn't the original plan, but sometimes things work out just fine!
Dave has a broad range of sailing experience, having circumnavigated the UK and the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts of the Iberian pensinsula, and survived storms in the Bay of Biscay!
Dave's own boat is the 1947 classic sloop "Gemini of Leith". When he's not skippering adventures up and down the coast of Catalonia, you can often see Gemini sailing the waters of Barcelona. Look out for her distinctive classic lines and red headsail!
