Our first talk of the year is on the 5th February by Barrie Neilson the owner of the Flotilla Sailing Company, Sailing Holidays. Originally from New Zealand and after gaining his early sailing experience in these waters and sailing from New Zealand to Australia, Barrie decided in 1975 to come to the UK.He first started working in the charter business as an engineer in 1979 and subsequently as a flotilla skipper in Greece, Florida and the Former Yugoslavia. His career has seen him rise through the business to become the owner of the largest British owned and operated sailing holiday company. He will talk about his experiences of over 40 years of sailing in various parts of the world. He will also cover how he and his wife have developed the sailing business and the challenges they have had in creating a flotilla company that now operates over 178 yachts across the Greek Islands.
