Richard is one of the most experienced charter captains you’ll have the pleasure of meeting, having sailed throughout his life around the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Richard, who has crossed the Atlantic 19 times, owned several yachts before Emily of Cowes including the beautiful schooner, Coral of Cowes and the legendary ketch Emily Morgan. For Spring and Summer 2022 we are going to be based at Mercury Marina which is an idyllic location half way up the Hamble River.

In 2021 James Gasper, born and bred in Cowes, joined Team Emily for a six month apprenticeship. He is now off in the Mediterranean on King’s Legend a world girdling Swan 65. There is now a vacancy for 2022’s apprentice.
