About Tom Cunliffe

Tom Cunliffe may be a household name as a sailor, a TV presenter and a Yachtmaster Instructor Examiner, but he remains a family sailor by choice. Self-taught as a teenager in 'engineless' 25-footers, he has built a life around cruising with his wife and daughter to the faraway places of which dreams are made. Years of teaching offshore at the National Sailing Centre have given him a remarkable knack of explaining how skippering can be low-stress and safe, while never forgetting that, above all, it has to be fun. Cruising remains Tom Cunliffe's passion. He currently owns a classic 44-foot cutter, and has sailed his yachts with friends and family from the Caribbean to Russia and from Brazil to the Arctic. When not sailing or working, he grows roses and rides a large motorcycle. His website is www.tomcunliffe.com
