Johan has many years experience as a sailing instructor and has been a RYA Yachtmaster instructor for 11 years. His passion for sailing and experience is evident in his teaching methods, which makes him highly regarded by his students, past and present.
Initially it was his love of travel and adventure that took him to the Caribbean where he lived the cruising lifestyle on his own yacht while teaching scuba diving and working on charter yachts.
After crossing the Atlantic numerous times on yacht deliveries, he sailed to the Mediterranean, where he worked on a variety of yachts, including classical topmast schooners, modern sailing yachts , motor yachts, sailing flotillas, catamarans and racing yachts.
The joy in sharing his passion, knowledge and experience is what continually draws him back to teaching sailing. Whenever Johan is at home, you will often find him instructing.
