LOOKING FOR CREW??? Hi I’m Ally and I would be delighted to help you prepare and accompany you on your next adventure crossing. I am 49 years old air conditioning engineer from Glasgow, Scotland and I have recently sailed over 9000km from Iceland to Ushuaia, South Argentina. WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE ME ON?? I understand & respect that your boat is your home and I would treat it like my own by keeping it clean, tidy and safe at all times. I appreciate the discipline & safety measures needed on board and I always follow instructions from the skipper. Throughout my sailing experience I have shown that I am able to stay calm in stressful and high-pressure situations, successfully working independently or as part of a team as the situation desires. I have my own sailing clothing and full worldwide ocean yearly insurance. I can cook, clean and I am more than willing to take part in the required maintenance jobs and pay my share of the costs. I am always looking to learn from other members of the crew and have completed solo watches day and night. I have my RYA Day Skipper certification and am hoping to obtain enough experience to sit my yachtmaster certification when I return home. My current location is United Kingdom SAILING CURRICULUM VITAE Alisdair Jack Having completed most of my sailing experience around the Western Isles of Scotland in my spare time, using my friend’s yachts, I recently took a sabbatical and signed up for a new and exciting challenge.
