Your hosts

Your hosts aboard Emily Morgan are husband and wife team “Bones” and Anna Black.

Both “Bones” and Anna have sailed from a very young age.  Anna’s first sailing experience was at 18 months old.  “Bones” cut his teeth in the notorious Bristol Channel.  They are both experienced sailing instructors equally happy cruising deserted islands or racing round the cans.



“Bones” has a passion for imparting his love of sailing to people of all ages. He ran a training centre for many years teaching sail and power and has a natural talent for entertaining children.  Having maintained his own boats from an early age and with a background in aviation, “Bones” turned his hand to successfully running his own boat repair business.  This ensures Emily Morgan is always maintained to an exceptionally high standard.




AnnaAnna has sailed both yachts and dinghies, growing up on the Hamble River and gaining an RYA dinghy instructors qualification at the age of 18. She is an RYA/MCA commercially endorsed Ocean Yachtmaster and has several thousand yachting miles under her belt, with her first Atlantic crossing in 2004.

Anna is also an accomplished cook who is passionate about using the freshest local ingredients to produce healthy fare, or if you prefer, thoroughly naughty desserts.
