William Dovey karibu

William Dovey

Will’s passion for sailing took hold at a young age when he first learned the skills in his harbourside hometown of Guernsey in the UK. Years later he hopped onboard the 30m racing sloop Leopard 3 as a deckhand and kicked off his yachting career.

Next, he racked up some serious nautical miles cruising New Zealand, the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. His role as second mate onboard Baltic’s cutting-edge ketch Hetarios took him to far-flung corners of the globe including the Southern Ocean around Cape Horn, and into the Arctic. Shoreside, you can find Will high on a mountain either skiing, climbing, or mountaineering. During an expedition to the Indian Himalayas he climbed to an impressive altitude of almost 7000m.
