Chairman, Rewnewable UK
Julian, 55, grew up on the Isle of Wight and has been ‘playing’ on boats from an early age. He cruised the English Channel throughout his teens, aboard his father’s Trapper 500. He describes his sailing as ‘singlehanded with company’, when his wife Mandy joins him aboard, although he occasionally races with friends from the Royal Southampton Yacht Club.
His main cruising grounds are The Solent, Channel Islands, North and West Brittany. His three children are grown up but occasionally join him for a daysail. Julian owns a wind industry consulting business and is also chairman of the trade association, Renewable UK.
