Sam Fortescue

Sam Fortescue is a wide-ranging marine writer whose byline appears on everything from fiction to gear tests; boat tests to regatta reports.

Assignments run from 14ft dinghies to 350ft superyachts, but he is most at home on his reliable Sadler 34.

She has carried him and his family to the Caribbean and back, around the Baltic and soon to the Norwegian fjords.
