Born 11th June 1993
An enthusiastic and confident professional with the ability to stay calm and focused when under pressure. Josh is a passionate and determined yachtsman with over 45,000 nautical miles logged mostly via the world's oceans and offshore. His first taste of the offshore sailing was at the tender age of 16 when his granddad collected him at his last day of school and took him for a trip around the British Isles-just the two of them! Josh's worst memory of this was passing the busy entrance to the Thames at night whilst his Granddad was asleep through it all!
Josh never looked back and went on to complete 4 legs of the Clipper Round the World Race sailing from the UK down to Australia before running out of money! It was after this that Josh realised that becoming a professional sailor was his destiny.

Since becoming a professional sailor, Josh has worked alongside Mervyn on trips accumulating around 20,000 NM, including luxury yachts such as Oysters and Hanse,

Josh now Skippers our deliveries and says his favourite trip is bringing the new Hanse yachts back from Germany as he loves the cold weather and the busy waters. Josh also works as part of our winterisation and maintenance team.

Josh states "Sailing is my passion and I spend as much time as possible out at sea or helping to maintain our family’s yacht if I ever have time!. I am a non-smoker and participate regularly in Boat-Gym. I also enjoy cycling, running and experiencing different cultures. I am also a self-confessed "yacht spotter" and happen to know the ins and outs of most yachts and racing teams!"
