Meet the Team
Dave (Owner) was brought up in Tenby so spent a lot of time in boats, surf and on the beach. He is a keen sailor and started his sailing career in Mirror Dinghies at the age of 11 with his brother Steve. They won the Welsh Schools Nationals at the age of 14 and then moved on to 420s and training with the Welsh Youth Squad and then the UK Youth Squad. When too old for Youth Squad Dave sold the 420 and bought an International 14. After 12 years racing and several boats later he had a break for a few years to start a family. He now sails at Lyme Regis Sailing Club in a RS100, a RS400 and a RS200.
If you call up you will more than likely speak to Dave.
Suzanne (Co-Owner) is fluent in French . She also spends a lot of her time on the water but prefers to stay dry. Having started her sailing career as a trolley dolly she knows her way around a boat and the dinghy park, but prefers nowadays relaxing on yachts and paddleboarding in the sun.
Charlotte is in charge of customer services. If you call in then you will almost certainly get Charlotte. She deals with all your problems and returns and does her best to make sure everything meets your expectations.
Beccy is in charge of the shop and all things stock related. If you come to visit then its Beccy that will be greeting you.
Jane works in dispatch. When you receive your order it is likely that it has been checked and packed by Jane.
Little Man (The youngest member of the Team) is a keen Oppie and RS200 sailor. He helps out in the shop when he's not in school, but you won't catch him answering phones.
