James began life as a sail trainee at the age of 16, buddying his less able-bodied uncle Nick Pilgrim aboard the tall ships STS Lord Nelson and TS Tenacious. Needless to say, he soon caught the tall ships bug and began to return to sea whenever the opportunity arose.
In the following years James brought his expertise in media production aboard a number of tall ships including ATYLA, Maybe and Tomidi, sailing through many, many tall ships events across Europe with the aim of documenting what it’s truly like to sail such unique vessels.
In seeking a new challenge, a key issue faced by many of the ships became clear: they simply aren’t managing to reach enough people to keep on doing what they do best. And so the search for the solution that is Tall Ships Network Began!
