Since the age of 10, David has been sailing and competing in both National and International events across the world. After spending 4 years in different British Optimist squads, David chose to join the Belgian Optimist team for his final year in this type of boat. During his Optimist career David achieved amazing results. After this, he moved on to Laser 4.7 and Radial, again obtaining great awards.

Apart from those results, David learned and appreciated many different ways of coaching from some of the worlds best coaches. Which he’s able to use and pass on today as a full-time sailing coach.
