Aged 18 years old
In 2009, Jack helped sail Swan to Belfast and back again; an opportunity that gave him a taste for the open sea, an experience he hopes to build upon at this year’s Tall Ships Races. Jack enjoys the feeling of being at sea as it removes him from the constraints of everyday life as well as the sense of adventure that comes from sailing a Tall Ship competitively.
Even though Jack was only six years old the last time the Tall Ships event came to Shetland he remembers the carnival spirit and celebrations it brought to the islands. He is looking forward to being cheered off by all his friends and family at the Parade of Sail as he joins the fleet of Tall Ships embarking on Race 2.
