About the Skipper:

I have been a skipper for over 40 years on various types of boat and worked angling boats from rhos on sea since the harbour was made over 25 years ago.

Jack is now the main skipper of the incentive. He started off with me as a crew lad at a very young age, keeping the boat clean, helping the anglers out on deck and most importantly keeping the kettle on the go! He is now a qualified skipper and still as keen to help out the anglers as ever.
