Arctic Tern Uk in West Green;land


As a team Ali and Les have worked/sailed together many times and look forward to welcoming you to an adventure of a life time, whether it is a week’s relaxing sailing or time on the water improving your Sailing and Navigation skills in both warm and cold remote areas of the world.

Ali Parsons

started dinghy sailing with her father at the age of seven, but it wasn’t until her late twenties she became interested in Yachts.

After passing her RYA Yachtmaster qualification, Ali took up full time sailing and left the UK to go world cruising, sailing in both middle and high latitudes.

As a RYA Instructor, and RYA Ocean Yachtmaster she returned to the UK to work for Clipper Ventures, skippering their 60ft and 68ft yachts on their corporate sailing days and training the crew for the round the world yacht race.

One thought on “About”

  1. Dear Les and Ali
    I have been very interested to read of your exploits in 2013 and I send my best wishes to you both for the new year.
    I must say it makes my own trips round the Greek Islands and Peloponnes seem very tame although I hope my sailing techniques are worthy of the tuition I received in the Irish
    Sea. The topping lift is never too tight!

    With very best wishes to you both
