Captain Pat is always looking for the next adventure and will soon be spending more time back with his “toes in the Sand” in the islands to ensure a hands-on review of destinations, boats and crew.
Captain Pat grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He has worked in the Civil Engineering field for over 20 years spending most of that time in the booming Oilsand area of Alberta. He had the unique opportunity of managing staff and large commercial marine vessels in the Tailings Engineering industry among other areas.
As a teenager, he was a competitive swimmer, lifeguard and part of a scuba club. His interest in sailing started as a kid with small sail boats. As an adult, he has always spent the Alberta summers putting in as much time as possible on the water, waterskiing and sailing his Hobie Cat.
Pat’s love for the water and the boating world, both professionally and personally pushed him towards further education into the Yachting world of the Caribbean. Pursuing this new adventure, expanded his knowledge and certifications by completing the Master of Yacht 200 Ton Limited License and STCW95. Pat is currently upgrading many of his certifications to also meet the Transport Canada qualifications.
As well as his sailing capabilities, Pat hold his Advanced PADI diver certificate and knows the ins and outs of snorkeling and free diving.
