Ivan a qualified and commercially endorsed RYA/MCA and an ISA yachtmaster offshore both power and sail.
Capt Ivan is a competent long distance and heavy weather sailor with experience as a sailing skipper in the North and Mid Atlantic, the North Pacific, South and East China Seas, Gulf of Aden, the Indian Ocean, Med and many other areas. He’s not sure how many sea miles he has anymore as he gave up counting some time ago. He has worked in adventure tourism for the past five years and is a very well-known character in the Greek Islands.
Capt Ivan is very definitely a warm people person and brings the Irish tradition of ‘seanchaí’ (story telling) Off The Beaten Tack. Some of his story’s might even be true! With a background in geology Ivan will be also able to you about every rock you see - really though, so unless you’re interested in rocks… Ask him at your own risk!
Captain Ivan is an pure adventurer in the classic sense, and doesn’t hold back when it comes to providing exciting ideas for things to do and see.
