I love sailing and living on board. In 2011 I crossed Atlantic Ocean from Gibraltar to Guadalupe and 2012 back from Guadalupe to Palma de Mallorca, via Azores Faial, and barbate, with Vittorio Malingri sailing school. November 2012 I sailed 45 days in Indian Ocean, Andaman Islands on Infinity 35mt Ketch. 2013 I sailed from San Blas to Santo Domingo, I crossed the Panama Canal and sailed to Hawaii on a Solaris 72ft vessel.In2013 I crossed from Barbate Spain, to Bahia Brazil and from Punta Del Este Uruguay to CapoVerde via CapeTown and Sant Helena. On 2014 I purchased a boat Alden Caravelle 42 at Santa Barbara Ca and I sailed from California to Panama, via Cabo San Luca, Acapulco, Puerto Chapas. I lived on board until April 2018 at the San Blas Islands. I can steer, watch, cook and clean. I have a smiling, easy going character. I am really choosy about safety on board. To share a safe, well organised and clean boat is a great pleasure. I love boat 15 or more foots as I like to sail with many crew members. I love living on board, long crossing smiling people. I would like to cross Atlantic on November/December, and possibly sail to San Blas, Panama, and I will be happy to help clean, cook, steer etc. in change of hospitality on board. In Italy now, cause Covid-19, I am looking for sailing opportunities .
