Currently based in: Varna, Bulgaria
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 4000 ocean miles / 8000 coastal miles
I am keen to crew for a responsible captain on a seaworthy sailing yacht. Hope you can help me to come closer to this. I love sailing but I know, that love can hurt and I need to learn and work a lot to be loved in return. I am responsible and reliable, I believe I have practical sense, can cook meals with three ingredients, take directions and be proactive if a situation occurs. I have some 15 years and 10000 miles cruising and racing on and off behind me, but I'm always looking and listening to gain more experience, so, please, let me know if you are seeking for an unpaid (competent) crew. I'm easy going, adventures, a good mate and generally happy, willing to be part of a sailing team with good intentions. I can pay my own expenses. Thanks for the feedback! More info at Peter, 62, holding a Dutch passport.
