Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: London, United Kingdom
Looking for: Mediterranean & Black Sea; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 3000 coastal miles
Looking for ARC 2023 crewing opportunity. I have sailed on and off all my life and I am a qualified RYA Coastal Skipper. When I was younger I used to race (crew) and do cross (English) Channel trips (skipper and crew). More recently I have been based in the Solent (skipper) and sailed a bit on the West coast of Scotland and in Norway (crew). I am about to retire (April 2023) so I will have more time to sail and go on longer voyages.
