Windsurfing around Edinburgh


Guerilla with Manic 3.7


Enduro with Matrix 6.0

I live in Edinburgh, and am a keen windsurfer. You will often find me at Gullane or Longniddry, when the wind is strong. I started windsurfing in 1986 on holiday in Greece.

I am interested in most areas of science. I have an understanding of mathematics and quantitative arguments.

For many years I read New Scientist, but have become tired of their formulaic journalism and immature politics. I recommend Chemistry World and Science News.

I like tuneful music and play piano and recorder.

I have 25 years experience of computing, including writing compilers, assemblers, operating systems, communications, hardware testing, and problem fixing.

I have a limited knowledge of the Italian language, which has greatly contributed to my appreciation of Italian opera, and my enjoyment of foreign holidays.

When there is not enough wind for windsurfing, I enjoy walking on the Scottish hills and elsewhere - see photo gallery. I also enjoy skiing. It is a wonderful feeling to experience mountain air and scenery. The variety of scenery in Scotland makes this a wonderful place to live.

Recent holidays have included windsurfing holidays in Tenerife, Naxos and Cape Verde.

This website is hand crafted. It is designed to work well with an 800 x 600 screen, and a dial-up connection. Photographs are provided in different sizes, so they do not take long to load.
