Jon Clift

After working on various sailing yachts around the world for several years, including three transatlantic sailing crossings and a period in the merchant navy, Jon Clift settled ashore, becoming involved in teaching, sailing and outdoor pursuits. Following his first degree in education, he spent a period as Director of Outward Bound Wales and latterly ran his own sailing school in South Devon.

Having always been concerned about environmental issues Jon decided to ‘walk the talk’ and took a Masters in Sustainable Environmental Management, working with a major water company for his dissertation. He now works as an environmental consultant, and still keeps his toes wet running sea survival courses. Jon lives in Salcombe, South Devon.
