Re: Phillip Ivo Clarke

2/31 Marua Rd




24 April 1995.







To whom it may concern.




Having sailed with Phillip over a 48 hour period on the charter vessel “Island star” a 45ft catamaran, I have found him more than competent in the areas such as coastal navigation, night sailing, ship handling, manoeuvring, seamanship and anchoring.



I have issued Phillip with an Island Rover Charters day skipper’s certificate that allows him to charter any one of our vessels without a skipper.



Phillip came across as confident but cautious, making safety his first priority.



He is very easy going with a sense of humour and a gourmet menu to please any appetite.



I have no reservations about recommending Phillip to any prospective charter operator, employer, or any skipper for coastal or offshore crewing positions and wish him well in his future endeavours.




Yours faithfully,


Darren Richards,

Commercial Launchmaster,
