Meet the Team — Trinity Sailing 2018 (Ben)
In the final days running up to the 2018 season getting underway we will be introducing the current Trinity Sailing Foundation crew and staff. Today we caught up with a member our office team — Ben Wheatley…
What is your role at Trinity Sailing?
I am Trinity Sailing’s Operations Director.
How long have your worked for Trinity?
This is my sixth year with Trinity and my third in the office.
What did you do prior to joining the team?
I worked on some other large sailing vessels which was a really exciting way to live, but a job that kept me away from home for much of the year.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I still, thankfully, have the opportunity to take these beautiful vessels to sea, covering for our existing skippers when they are on leave. This allows me to have a nice balance of sailing and time at home with my family. It’s so nice to be working for a charity that changes so many lives for the better.
Where is your favourite sailing destination?
It has to be the west coast of Scotland. There are so many options to choose from and there is always somewhere new to explore.
When you’re not sailing, what else do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy gardening, hill-walking and spending time at home with the family.
