David Savage:
about davidDavid is a prime example of how sailing really opens up the world of travel. He has over 50 000 nautical miles (accumulated in the past four years of his professional sailing career) under his sailor’s belt, which includes five Atlantic Ocean crossings and a Pacific and Indian Ocean crossing respectively. He has also sailed in and across the East and South China Sea, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean not to mention dropping anchor in various ports on five continents and countless islands. And naturally no crossing would be complete without sailing through some of the busiest waterways in the world, including the Panama Canal, the Straits of Gibraltar, the Singapore Straits, the Straits of Malacca and the Taiwan Straits. What floats his boat? Dave is a passionate man of the ocean and for him – teaching is his way of sharing his experiences, life lessons and love of the sea with others.
