Earliest memories were of cold windy evenings, while his Uncle ran the cadet section of a local sailing club. Too young to sail but sat wrapped up in the rescue boat; battered vigorously with the salty mist spraying onto all their joyous faces.

Ben has been on the local yacht racing scene from an early age. Out in the worst of the Humber weather, with butterflies in his stomach, Ben anticipated the next wave that would judder the boat with roller coaster motions. Too young and small to be able to pull ropes or shout the commands but thoroughly enjoyed his time spent on the Humber water.

Now with over 20 years’ experience on the water Ben has started Drift Boardsports, with one of his main objectives being to grow watersports participation.

Drawing on his time Sailing, Windsurfing and Stand Up Paddle Boarding Ben brings a wealth of technical knowledge, and skills across all areas. Alongside the high adrenaline moments, Drift Boardsports is all about spending time with friends, enjoying chilled vibes and long summers evenings on the water.
