Hi I’m Paul,
I have been fortunate to have grown up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and raised 3 wonderful children here.
I started my working life working at the local marinas and clubs as a young boy driving people out to their boats on the weekends serving them fuel and helping them with their boats. It was a part of my life I believe was one of the happiest times I have had.
I was persuaded to choose a career outside of the marine industry and have now returned to do what I truly love – Sailing Pittwater.
Pittwater is home to some of the most exclusive beaches and bays in Sydney and they are only accessible by water .
You will begin your experience from The Newport. Public wharf which is located at the western end of queens parade Newport.
I will meet you at the wharf and we will proceed to board the Sha Meduza an amazing Hunter 38 yacht. I will then give you a safety briefing and have a chat about what you would like to do for the day. There are so many options ,swimming at secluded beaches bushwalking a hike up to historic palm beach lighthouse ( a must for the view) fish and chips for lunch at the famous Patonga beach co op there is camping there too!
Another must see is coasters retreat also known as the basin .I have been camping here since I was a boy and have enjoyed watching my kids have the same privilege.
I have been showing off my back yard to friends relatives and overseas visitors for years and have decided to now make it my career.
I have come a full circle and have returned to do what I truly love…….
What Clients Say
Best birthday weekend ever!
We did a bareboat charter on Paul’s Hunter 38 for the weekend and it was the most wonderful experience and fabulous birthday celebration! The boat is beautifully kept and Paul was very helpful and friendly. The weather and sailing conditions were perfect. Anchoring off pretty beaches and taking the rowing boat to shore was also lots of fun! We would love to return and charter Paul’s boat again – can’t wait to recommend this to all of our friends – thanks again Paul.

What an amazing day. Paul is a fantastic host. His Hunter 38 yacht was the perfect choice for our family of four to spend the day on. We had the sails up, stopped off on a beach and swam in a bay. Paul shared some interesting local insights and history. We’d definitely hire again from Sailing Pittwater with no hesitation.

I booked a day sailing with Paul as part of a surprise engagement. In the lead up and planning Paul was extremely helpful and accomodating to my needs and provided a high level of support and flexibility. Paul is very passionate about sailing and loves what he does, this shows through on the water as he provides as very personalised service while maintaining a good degree of professionalism. On the day the experience went very smoothly and Paul was again only happy to accomodate our needs. This tailor made charter experience was not only great value but an experience we will truely remember for the rest of our lives, we look forward to sailing with Paul again in the future and can not recommend him highly enough!
