Meet the Team 2019 — John
The 2019 sailing season has started this weekend. In the run up we have been introducing you to the current team here at the Trinity Sailing Foundation. Here is our penultimate introduction to a member of our crew, John…
What is your role at Trinity?
I provide operational support to both the office staff and the crew.
What are you most looking forward about the coming season?
The voyage to Scotland on Leader — and the general buzz around the office when the vessels are all out, or when they are back in again for a turnaround.
What’s your best piece of advice for someone who has never been sailing before?
Listen to the briefings and then you can get involved with all of the sailing activities, which helps boast your confidence.
Which is your favourite vessel in the Trinity fleet?
I have worked and sailed on Leader more than the others, but they are all beautiful vessels with their own character.
When you’re not sailing, what else do you enjoy doing?
I’ve recently taken up scuba diving which has been a wonderful experience. I also enjoy picture framing, walking, gardening, and listening to music — particularly opera.
