Ben grew up on the coast of Ireland sailing Opti’s and Lasers as well as competing in Club 420 team racing. Ben’s high school was ranked second in the country for two years. Ben went to college at University College Dublin where he captained the sailing team and sailed in three consecutive university big boat worlds.
Ben coached and instructed at top European level competition in Opti’s, Lasers, and 420’s. He ran the largest sailing program in Ireland. Moving to the United States in 2015, Ben has remained active managing and racing several big boat campaigns.
