Will is a writer and sailor based in the coastal town of Lymington, UK. After a spell working in the corridors of the House of Commons as a researcher and lobbyist, he decided learning to sail would be a good mechanism to see more of the world. Following a cold winter in the English channel learning the ropes, he cut his teeth as a charter skipper and on yacht deliveries, before running private yachts on both sides of the Atlantic. Some time along the way, he started writing about it.
Sailing has taken him across the Atlantic in both directions, fighting a galley fire in the Bay of Biscay and into hidden anchorages around the world.
Will contributes regularly to a range of magazines including Yachting World and Yachting Monthly, where he spent a year as Sailing Editor.
