Your skipper on your private charter
Gordon Drysdale will be your skipper aboard 'Blue J,' a Redbay Stormforce 650, for which he holds commercially endorsed Royal Yachting Association qualifications. Gordon is a 'wildlife safe' operator, accredited under the WISE scheme.
Gordon is an experienced sailor and his knowledge of Loch Torridon comes from working for Torridon Sea Tours and aboard local prawn creel boats. Originally from Glasgow, he studied law at Durham University before working in central London as a chartered surveyor.
Gordon and his wife, Iona, live on Loch Torridon, close to where Iona grew up in Shieldaig.
