The Skipper


Nigel Lihou

I am Nigel. I was born in Guernsey in the Channel Isles and have been involved with boats from an early age.



Boating has always featured in my life and I began my interest at an early age, I have always taken the opportunity to go boating and several years ago obtained my skippers ticket.  Since then I have been skippering various boats for other owners until deciding to take the plunge and purchase Optimist from Matt Horne.



I also have a background in Engineering and am a fully qualified Electrical / Electronics Engineer and a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore and an MCA Boatmaster Tier 1 level 2 endorsed for passenger carrying.



Having owned many boats myself and operated and run boats for other people, myself and my wife felt that the time was right for us to go it alone; we hope that you will support us in this and consider Optimist an option for your trip.
