Captain Rick Driscoll, RYA commercially endorsed Yachtmaster Certificate No. 31504 & RYA Cruising Instructor (updated 2012).
Your friendly skipper is Captain Rick Driscoll. He’s a fully qualified RYA Yachtmaster and RYA Cruising Instructor – which means he’s gone through the very highest levels of training – and he’s commercially endorsed by the British Department of Transport.
Rick is also reassessed by the UK’s Royal Yachting Association every 5 years (most recently in 2012), so you can be sure you’re in expert hands.
But Rick is a captain with a difference, having also been in showbusiness for 35 years. The lead singer in 1970s chart band Kenny, he was also lead guitarist for Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel, Classix Nouveaux, and Alison Moyet (he also co-wrote for Alison’s multi-platinum album “Raindancing”).
Rick still works with music in the winter season, but come summer he’s out doing what he loves – sailing in the glorious Greek sunshine and sharing the experience with his clients. He describes it as the perfect antidote to the hectic world of entertainment.
Rick’s friendliness, dry wit, sense of fun, love of good food and passion for sailing all help to create a joyously exhilarating holiday or sailing course that you’ll be talking about for years. Read what our customers say
