Having caught the bug for yacht cruising as a teenager on the rivers of the East Coast, Theo has since explored far and wide under sail – north to the Lofoten Islands, south to Morocco, the Gambia and Senegal, east to the Baltic and the Mediterranean and west to the Caribbean.

He sailed the family Hallberg Rassy 31 for a number of years, but is now the proud owner of a Sadler 29, kept on the Lymington river, from where he and his wife Georgie cruise both sides of the English Channel.

After stints in the Royal Navy and in public relations in the City, Theo combined the best of both worlds and began writing for Yachting Monthly as a freelance contributor. He joined the team in 2014 and has been editing the magazine since 2017.
