SERVICE CENTRE SUPPORT

Iain started sailing at the age of 10 on the chilly lochs of Scotland. He raced high performance dinghies and quickly developed sailing passion. By the time Iain was 14 he was teaching others though the RYA scheme.

He went on to study sports coaching in Edinburgh. In 2006 Iain headed to warmer climates to run sailing centres in Greece, Egypt and the Caribbean working for Sunsail and Mark Warner.

Along the way Iain gained his RYA Yachtmaster and commercial and powerboat instructor qualifications.

Iain also enjoyed racing in regattas around Europe, the highlight being part of the winning team at Cowes Week Regatta in the Etchells class.

Through 2011 he was based in Monaco working as a deckhand and head of water sports on a 65m Superyacht.

Iain joined the Windcraft Group service team in 2012 and provides an expectational level of support to the team.

He still enjoys onshore and offshore racing when he can fit it in.

In Iain’s own words

“From an early age I have known sailing is what I was going to do and that New Zealand and Australia was where I wanted to do it“.
