Alfredo Borobia, male, 27

Ref 67787

Nationality: Spain
Currently based in: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
Looking for: Caribbean; West Africa & South Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 1 ocean miles / 10000 coastal miles
I am an experienced sailor from Venezuela based in Las Palmas. My experience primarily includes coastal sailing (up to 100 miles from the shore) as both captain and crew. I gained experience from sailing in Los Roques, La Tortuga, the Balearic, and the Canary Islands, although I have never sailed across the Atlantic. I am searching to join as crew to cross the Atlantic in November 2023, ideally departing from Las Palmas. I consider myself an organised person (especially on board), responsible and always willing to help with the daily tasks. I am a native Spanish speaker and fully competent in English. Don’t hesitate to give me a call or drop me an email to get in touch. Alfredo
