Ref 48716

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: London, United Kingdom
Looking for: Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 1 ocean miles / 200 coastal miles
I'm a member of Greenwich Yacht Club in London, 40 years old, married with a daughter, keen sailor since 2016 and recently sold my first boat (a Corribee). Experience coastal sailing only, in US and Solent/East Coast, usually skittering my own small boat bit also crewing when I can, including the Round the Island Race. Have RYA Day Skipper theory and practical and the US equivalents (ASA 101 and 103). I've got an opportunity to have a break to sail this year between jobs. I'm level-headed, with a decent dose of humility at sea and get on well with people. Very happy to provide more information.
