Mark Breach is a Principal Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, England.  He lectures in Mathematics, Geodesy and Navigation.  He holds master's degrees from Cambridge and Oxford; his PhD was concerned with astronomical positioning.  He is an Associate Fellow of the Royal Institution of Navigation and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors. 

Born and brought up in Falmouth, England, he has been around boats since a boy.  From an Atlantic crossing under sail in his teens (long before the luxury of GPS) he has crewed, skippered and navigated thousands of nautical miles.  With his yacht, SunArise kept on the River Humber; the East coasts of England and Scotland are his current cruising grounds.
