He is an advanced skier and BASI Ski Instructor having worked for a variety of UK operators. His interest in sailing expeditions has taken him on a nine month expedition as owner/skipper of a 30ft boat from the UK to the West Indies, the Mediterranean, Vancouver and the Alaskan Aleutian Islands, and along the Newfoundland/Labrador coast to west Greenland and on up to Disko Bay in the Arctic. Brian splits his summer and winter time between his home near Penrith and his apartment in Meribel.
