About the Skipper

Action Outdoors founder David Robertson is the skipper of Nina Soraya. He holds the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification. David has been sailing since an early age and has well over 70k sea miles.

His early sailing was on a Mirror dinghy at Loch Venechar in Scotland, he soon progressed into racing 420 and 470 class dinghies. A lucky break led to him working several years for the Scottish Sports Council at Cumbrae. There he gained RYA Senior Instructor, RYA Windsurfing Instructor, RYA Powerboat Instructor as well as his Yachtmaster qualification. A career in engineering then took over for some years, until the call of the sea was too strong. With 2 friends he renovated and sailed a 44 foot ketch around the world. Upon return he set up Action Outdoors, concentrating mostly on mountain sports.

The project with Nina Soraya combines his 2 passions of sailing and the wilderness – and he looks forward to sharing some memorable experiences with you on board.
