About Michael Dye
I’ve been working as a professional sailor since 2009, involved in yacht deliveries,Yacht maintenance, yacht brokerage and sailing instruction… Teaching both RYA and ASA training schemes
Prior to 2009 my sailing had been on dinghy’s & sailing on a college friends fathers boat, out of the Hamble… although my first outing on said yacht, involved motoring across to the Isle Of White, partying the weekend (21stbirthday) and then motoring back.
From then on I was hooked, I guess it’s in the Genes ! Father- Royal Navy Fleet Air-arm Mother –Royal Navy Fleet Air-arm (Aircraft Mechanic class A) Quite an achievement back in the 50’s Brother – Yachtmaster
From then it was sailing holidays, dinghy racing and RYA training that took up my spare time, away from the building industry
So here I am now, on beautiful Grenada in the Caribbean, having sailed here from Lefkada (Greece) in 2015. Still teaching Sailing and now working with Boatshed.
Having owned yachts over the years – Warsash one design 1964 (Folk Boat hull) A Beneteau 1st 325 named WAFU (for all you ex RN sailors !) and a Formosa 51. I feel I have a rounded knowledge of yachts and the industry in general. Together with my 50,000+ nm sailing CV, my YachtmasterOcean, having worked as a Yachtbroker on Lefkada and of course instructing over 300 sailing students in both the UK, Greece and Grenada.
I hope the above will give you the confidence to leave your boat with myself and Boatshed Grenada… of course you may have further questions, so please ask
