Engineer: John

My name is John

Position: Engineer and Deckhand

I am from Scotland and have worked as a fisherman off the Scottish west coast since I was 16 years old. My parents took me on a sailing trip around the globe when I was younger, so I sort of like to “tick off the oceans”. When I joined the Eye of the Wind crew, I had not been to the Baltic Sea yet … now I can tick off that one, too.

The first time I came across the Eye of the Wind and her crew was in Cádiz / Spain. I eventually went aboard at Horta (Azores) in the spring of 2018. I really enjoyed the crossing from there to the European mainland, and I would love to do a full Atlantic crossing again.

My main task on board is the maintenance of the engines and the pipe system. You could say that I am the one that crawls into the small spaces. What I really like about the Eye of the Wind is the diversity of her crew, the melting of different people you will meet aboard, the diversified conversations, the constant learning from other people’s knowledge – and, of course, the fact that she sails.
