About Tom

Tom Waddington, a Yorkshireman in Switzerland, isn’t just a top-tier ski instructor—he’s also a seasoned sailor. With over 400 hours of sea training, including multi-day expeditions, he’s well-prepared for his next challenge: the Mid Atlantic crossing.

Following the tragic loss of his girlfriend, Hatty Harrison, in 2020, Tom found solace and purpose in pushing his boundaries, recognizing the importance of mental health and personal growth. His journey serves as a testament to resilience and the healing power of adventure.
