Richard grew up in Dartmouth, the home of England's great naval training base. In 1998, while working as an advertising executive for local radio, Richard decided it was time to throw off the corporate shackles. He took his (Royal Yachting Association) Yacht Master's Certificate, and soon found a job with Sunsail in the Greek Ionian Islands. A few months after joining Sunsail, he was asked to set up a new, 12 yacht, base on the west coast of Greece. In 1999, Sunsail asked Richard to move to the British Virgin Islands and manage their flotilla base in Tortola. Now working at The Moorings Yacht brokerage, his knowledge of the BVI, charter boats, and cruising make Richard an ideal person to come and see for a friendly chat.
