Terry has been keen on boats since he was a child. He started sailing dinghies and then moved onto larger boats. He is a qualified electrician but he has always yearned to turn his hobby into a career, and following his first trans Atlantic crossing with friends, he decided to do just that.
He is a commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power). He has also been both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Ireland’s volunteer lifeboat service.
His other great passion is diving and he always looks forward to showing the delights that the Caribbean has to offer. For those who do not wish to dive, Terry is really happy to bring guests, young and not so young, snorkeling.
Terry sails with Ruth, who formerly worked as a teacher before joining him for a career in sailing. She has always enjoyed cooking and has taken cookery courses in places such as Rick Steins Seafood School in Padstow, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland amongst others. She cooks a diverse range of meals, and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible.
Together Ruth and Terry have run a 47’ charter catamaran in the Bahamas and a private 70’monohull, both for long periods of time. They have crossed the Atlantic together 4 times, have cruised extensively around the Caribbean, Bahamas, Miami, the Mediterranean, Atlantic Islands and of course at home in Ireland.
They are a very welcoming couple who work as a team.
