Our lead skipper, Jim, first stepped aboard a sailing boat aged 11 and has since worked on a variety of boats since. Jim’s experience is broad and includes sailing the Mediterranean on a Sailing Ketch, with return sail to Chichester on a 1961 Finisterre Yawl. He has worked on a variety of sail and power boats in the Caribbean
for many years – including hunkering down in St Maarten during Hurricane Luis. He taught sea-schools for mainly American holiday makers, aboard various 46 to 52 foot sailing boats. There was also the opportunity to run a powerboat day charter to Prickly Pear Island, just off Anguilla. A Paradise!
Jim later instructed dingy sailing for children and adults in London, where he also helmed Dragon boats in the various events he organised for charity.
He holds an RYA Advanced Power Boat Certification with Commercial Endorsement.
Jim has now settled in East Devon with his family, where his passion for the water continues.
Exe Voyages are based in Exmouth, Devon and offer boat trips along the Jurassic Coast and along the South Devon coastline towards Torbay.
The Jurassic Coast is England’s only Natural World Heritage Site, featuring world-famous geological formations, some of which are over 250 million years old. The East Devon coastline is not only extremely beautiful but also offers the opportunity for us to learn a bit about how the earth was formed.
The South Devon coastline features cliffs which are even older and the opportunity to learn about the fascinating local history. The dramatic rock faces provide a home for nesting coastal birds and perfect suntraps for resting seals.
