Good health, 188cm 93 kg, phisically fit. As to Covid four vaccination and never contracted. Not suffering from seasickness. Married with two children and retired. Extensive internationational experience. Lived abroad 10+years. US English fluent, but managed also a scottish lawyer, basic french and spanish as both being romance languages. Boat bought and sold boats as financial and family conditions allowed. Intended to do the Altantic Arc with own HR46 but covid struck and lost window of oppurtunity to children schooling commitements. Now i have out the HR46 for sale at €320k, anyone interested ? Splashed in 2004 in Bealieu Sur Mere and kept there until 2019 by an elderly couple. I am the second owner. Detail on mondialbroker and yatchworld. But not given up on doing more then med sailing. So i am looking to crew on someone else boat. I have not done much heavy wheather sailing, but often out when others coming to port (35 knots). Being a swimmer, skier and motocrosser not afraid but cautios of big winds and waves. As to roles on the boat on mine, probably like most of you, I am the low men on the totem pole. Get to fix broken toilets, taking six bags of laundry to be washed across town and being bitched to when going to windward and maiking no progress. The HR46 really does not go to windward .
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: married
Dietary requirements: None. Alcholic or not boats equivalent.
Languages: English; Italian; some french, but being a piemontese my dialect is very similar and simple spanish being a romance language.
