Keith McIlwain

Keith, from Bristol, started off his working life as a Sail Maker for dinghies, cruising and racing yachts.  After working his way up to Loft Manager for a premier sail company, he started a career in sales and marketing and has 34 years experience in these roles.  Seeking a complete career change because ‘you only live once’, Keith decided to return to the boating industry.  He is building a Golant Ketch as part of the course.  When he leaves the Academy he will start his own boatbuilding/restoration business.
