Adam Kane, male, 41

Ref 42936

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Geneva, Switzerland
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 1000 ocean miles / 3000 coastal miles
We are Adam, 40 and from the US and Susana, 30, from Colombia. We've been living in Geneva, Switzerland for the past 4 years and we are interested to sail around the Med and back to Latin America. I speak English and a bit of French and Spanish, Susana speaks Spanish, Portuguese, English, French and some German. Susana is just finishing her Master's in Translation, has worked as a project manager at a few companies, loves to play ultimate frisbee, hike, swim and photosynthesize :) I mostly work in communications (photography, video, writing, animation), and I have a Master's in Rural Development. I've also worked several years as a radio journalist, an outreach coordinator for a Univeristy, a mechanic (with a BS degree in Automotive Engineering Technology), a cook and a teacher in the past. I have some sailing experience having sailed twice around the Caribbean for a total of about 5 months, and the Baltic for 1 month. Susana doesn't have sailing experience, but is a quick learner. If you're interested to know more about us, we'd love to say hi, hear what your plans are and see if there is any way we could fit into them. We're both easy to get along with, enjoy a cold beer or a good wine and are good cooks!
