Malcolm joined us in September 2000.  Since that time he has flown to Caracas twice to monitor and record output curves from the Sun over continuous 12 hour periods.  Malcolm also advised on the practicalities of living onboard and working the vessel, seaworthiness and dock-ability of the vessel.

Malcolm also constructed several 1/40th model vessels to try different solar arrays + a pair of 1/20th catamaran hulls, which are still in use as a base line for comparing other catamaran hulls.  His swimming pool became a test tank to simulated storm conditions and for full size experiments to measure the thrust efficiency of various motor/propeller configurations.

 

Brought up in the wilds of North Cornwall, Malcolm is best at home on the water.  In 1959 he was indentured to The New Zealand Shipping Company as a Deck Cadet, and spent four years circumnavigating the world.

 

Continuing as an officer, he sailed far and wide and organised the British Sub Aqua Club on various bases.  In 1970 he started a diving school in North Cornwall, returning to Civil Aviation in 1972, he has accrued 15,000 hours flying all over Europe.

 

An accomplished yachtsman, he cruises extensively with expert sea cook wife Rosemary and adult children Emma and Ben.  Old hands at Cowes Week, Malcolm is keen to see Solar Navigator sail her way into the record books.
