  • Long distance voyages across the English Channel, Bay of Biscay, North West coast of England and Europe, Canary Islands, Cape Verde and a Transatlantic crossing to the Caribbean.
  • I’ve lived aboard and worked on boats since the late 80’s, and have a huge understanding of how they work and how to maintain them, so they continue to work.
  • I’ve worked in the following professions and am a fully skilled City and Guilds Welder, motorcycle technician of 20 years and boat builder, including fault finder, fitter and engineer of 12 years. As the owner of a boat building business, I employed a team of 25, which built 70+ boats.

My sailboat / yacht delivery business is specific to sailing vessels, and also offers a unique service delivering sail boats with electric propulsion.

Sailing is my life.

2021 and 2022 I’ve completed my longest voyage. A 6,000 nautical mile voyage onboard my electric powered Cobra 1050 from Cumbria on the North West coast of England, traveling down the West Coast of Britain and Europe to the Algarve in Portugal, onto the Canarie Islands and Cape Verde Islands, then crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua and the Caribbean Islands

My experience is reenforced by decades of operating most types of pleasure craft, from twin engine sport fishers, sail boats, inland waterways craft and electric propelled sail boats.

I’ve used most types of drive systems, including joy stick operated bow thrusters, morse controls, narrow boats with traditional wheels, vintage and new engines, barges and sailboats.

Owners will often join me, for part or the entire delivery. The chance provides the perfect opportunity to share the experience and become familiar with their boat.

My track record has no accidents or injuries, due to a cautious and safety minded approach on the water. Which is due to decades of living on board and my boat building business. .

Use the Contact Me page or email les.storm60@gmail.com for your initial contact and I will respond ASAP.

I’ll work with you to answer any questions, regarding arranging the safe delivery of your boat.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to providing you with the ultimate in boating professionalism and a captain services you can count on today and into the future.

Best regards,
Captain Les Robinson

Below is a recommendation from a crew member on my Transatlantic voyage.

To: Whom it may concern
From: Clemens Sprunghofer

Date: Sunday, May 29, 2022
Subject: Mr. Les Robinson Letter of Recommendation

Dear Sir/Madam,

I write this letter to provide a document of reference for Mr. Les Robinson. Mr. Robinson, another crew member and I sailed onboard his Ocean Strider from Cape Verde to Antigua across the Atlantic in February 2022.

Mr. Robinson is on an important mission for our planet. He has the idea of a 0% carbon footprint while traveling the world. Therefore, he wants to prove the possibility of solar electric engines on sailing boats and rise the attention of other boat owners for this option.

He is an experienced sailor and truly knowledgeable. For me, as a relatively inexperienced sailor, it was a great opportunity to learn from him. He is detailed oriented when it comes to the planning of the journey. While sailing he is very much focused on security and at the same time tries to make the trip as comfortable as possible for everyone.

If you are looking for an option to sail the world, I highly recommend joining Mr. Robinson on his mission.

Regards,

Clemens Sprunghofer
