Will Bruton is a writer and sailor based in Lymington, UK.Following university and a spell working at the UK Parliament, Will decided a life afloat might be a good mechanism to see some more of the world. Following a cold winter in the English channel acquiring a vague degree of competence, he cut his teeth as a charter skipper and working on yacht deliveries, before running several yachts on both sides of the Atlantic for their owners. Some time along the way, he started writing about it.

Sailing has taken him across the Atlantic in both directions, aboard a yacht on fire in the Bay of Biscay and into some of the Mediterranean’s best hidden anchorages- ensuring he’s rarely short of material to put pen to paper.

Will writes regularly for a range of travel and sailing publications and spent a year as Sailing Editor at UK yachting magazine Yachting Monthly.
