Alessandro Tonello, male, 48

Ref 37106

Nationality: Italy
Currently based in: Treviso, Italy
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 2000 coastal miles
I'm seeking a crew position on ARC 2023 or similar ocean crossing - I'm comfortable watch leading and happy to do all tasks needed. I'm easy going and keen to help make your crossing a fantastic trip before going on to do my own with my family in 2024. I'm well trained with several sailing and technical cources, and experienced across a range of monohulls 40-50f, having sailed a lot of coastal trips and time aboard. In July - September 23 I will be skippering coastal cruises from northern Italy to Slovenia, Croatia and possibly Greece. I'm married and a father of one great kid. I'm easy going and a non-smoking, fit and happy to do all tasks onboard, pretty used to helping fix those things that invariably break under passage. I enjoy being part of a team and meeting new people and cultures. As well as English I speak fluent Italian (mother tongue) and have lived in the UK, Switzerland, Italy and the Middle East. I'm looking to build up my offshore experience in advance of a 2024/2025 sailing with my family and boat.
