Was born in 1838, and educated at Harrow. He commenced his yachting career as early as 1850 on his uncle's 42-ton cutter, but there followed a period of twenty years in which he was unable to devote time to the sport.

Xanthe in the handicap matches, with her owner at the tiller, has been a successful prize-winner. He now owns the s.y. Vagabond, as well as the Xanthe,
