Entrepreneur John Cowpe was born to be on the water. Growing up on the west coast of Scotland in the town of Fairlie, famous for Fife Yachts, it’s only fitting really that John’s career has seen him sail yachts around the world, working and living his dream.
John’s earliest memories revolve around the sea and family holidays on small boats, and as he grew up he took up windsurfing, dinghy sailing, racing and working within the industry.
“Seeing all aspects of the sport from cruising to racing to moving from country to country, for me really drove home how multi-faceted it is as an activity,” says John.
