Micheal Young Grayhound’s 1st Mate

DSC_4349We are very happy to announce our 1st Mate for our new sailing season. _78U8202Micheal will be joining the team in March and we believe he will be a superb mate for Marcus and Grayhound. Micheal is in his mid twenties and was brought up on the wild DSC_4214southern Irish coast , in Bantry Bay.

He has grown up with traditional craft and for the last ten years has been sailing and laterly skippering the local Long boats which in effect are a mini version of Grayhound. DSC_4315He talks the lugger language, is fun to be around and hungry to sail and work on a bigger ship. Micheal is also a cruising instructor and last summer was teaching RYA courses to students from the West Cork Sailing Centre. We are so excited to be working with Micheal and look forward to sailing around the Atlantic with him next year.
