Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Cagliari, Italy
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 1750 ocean miles / 200 coastal miles
I am currently looking for an Atlantic crossing to get over to the Caribbean and find work for the winter. I am an experience sailor in both yachts and dinghies. I have had a lot of experience on smaller yachts (21’ and 41’). As well as my recent experience delivering and racing ‘Telefonica Black’ a Volvo 70. Aboard Telefonica Black my role as crew included coaching paying guests how to sail the boat, running the bow, as well as leading some night watches. On top of this I helped with general boat maintenance and carbon repairs. I have a keen interest in mechanics and engineering with experience repairing and servicing a whole range of things from performance Ferraris to 5HP outboards.
