Eric - Sailing Courses Instructor Dennis - Sailing Courses Instructor Russ - Sailing Courses Instructor

Eric started sailing in his early teens, on a square rigger in the Moray Firth in Scotland with the Outward Bound Trust. This experience and the early underwater documentaries of Hans and Lotte Haas created a love of the open sea, both above and below the waves, which has endured unabated to this day. His sail cruising experience dates back to the mid 70's since when he covered many thousands of miles in a variety of sail and power boats, including traditional long keelers, modern fin keel cruiser/racers, catamarans and trimarans.

Before moving to Mallorca his cruising grounds included UK waters, Holland, Belgium, France, Atlantic Spain and Portugal. He has made more Biscay crossings than he cares to remember and has also skippered transatlantic crossings and sailed extensively in the Grenadines. He has held the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Yachtmaster Certificate since 1983 and has been a Yachtmaster Instructor since 1993. He has lived in Mallorca since 2000. He is also a British Sub Aqua Club advanced instructor since 1993.

Dennis fell in love with the sea at an early age when he used to holiday and fish as a child in Angelsy. In his early twenties he returned to learn how to sail. Since then Dennis has lived and worked all over the world in his previous career and has SCUBA dived and sailed in many parts of the world including the Caribbean, Central America( transiting the Panama Canal several times) as well as UK waters and the Mediterranean.

Coming from a career in Telecoms he made the logical choice and lived aboard his own Catamaran in Mallorca for several years before joining the Solaris team. Dennis is a qualified RYA instructor under both power and sail and has extensive experience having completed many yacht deliveries to the Caribbean and the Mediterranean including a 22 metre sailing yacht from Brazil to Mallorca. His dive total exceeds 500 and with more than 15000 nautical miles behind him Dennis is a valued and experienced yachtsman and instructor.

Russ started out competing at both sprint and slalom canoeing, combining this in the early days with Sub-aqua diving. He kicked off his sailing for a short time sailing mirror dinghies on the lakes of South Wales.

In the mid eighties Russ took to sailing small cruisers predominantly around the south and east coast of the UK. Since then Russ has progressed up to an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor, simultaneously becoming a British Sub-Aqua Diving instructor. With well over 10,000 nautical miles behind him, he has delivered boats to various parts of the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean. To compliment his sailing skills, Russ is an enthusiastic cook and great company.
