Alex Lomakin – Business Owner
Sailing on Ocean Gem over the last few years has been a fantastic experience. Getting the opportunity to compete in world-class ocean races like the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race as well as Sydney to Gold Coast, Hamilton Island Race Week and local regattas has been outstanding.
David makes a great teacher and mentor and has the patience and temperament to bring the best out of his crew and the boat. Ocean Gem has proved to be an extremely competitive boat performing well above what you would expect a boat of this type to do. This has been all due to the never give up and positive attitude of David and all who sail with him. I have learnt a lot over this time, be it regattas, twilight racing, ocean racing, delivery trips; it’s all been a fantastic time. Its a great group so much so that my wife is now a keen participant and it has proved to be a great training ground for her. I love the experience and always look forward to the next sailing opportunity.
