About John.Wilding

I work as a humanitarian consultant specialising in food and agriculture, and travel widely in disaster and war zones in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. I purchased Peoganesh in Vonitsa, Western Greece, in 2003 and immediately moved her to Turkey where I renewed the standing rigging, reconditioned the engine, fitted new hatches etc., etc.  I sailed her in the 2004 Eastern Mediterranean rally (Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon and Israel) as a 'trial run' in order to 'break' anything that was likely to break.  Since then,  I have cruised in Greek and Turkish waters and the improvement 'project' has included painting the topsides, fitting integrated electronic mapping/ radar/automatic pilot/wind direction, lazy jacks, new dinghy and other general improvements. The vessel is now unfortunately for sale due to family reasons and I will look to part exchange or buy a smaller vessel in British waters.
