Darren Beacroft

Flotilla Skipper

Darren spent 15 plus years as a chief and lead mechanic in Formula 1. Working for Williams, B.A.R , Honda F1 racing and Brawn GP. He has always had a love of the Sea and after a brief midlife crisis decided to follow his dreams to become a professional sailor and qualified as a RYA Yachtmaster in March 2020. He can be often found busting a few yoga shapes and is a keen freediver, thanks to Sarah’s influence. He has spent many months sailing the Ionian and Peloponnesus with Sarah aboard his yacht Dolphin. Apart from his other talents, Darren loves to make mouth watering meals ranging from authentic pizzas to Indian curries.
