After graduating from UCD Dublin with a BCommMIS, Gareth took an opportunity to become a Professional Sailor.
Whilst working and training to be a Superyacht Captain he suffered a C4 Complete Spinal Cord Injury at a beach in Antigua in 2014. After Rehab in Miami and Belfast he was discharged home to Co. Antrim.
