Hei there :) My name is Andrin, 27 years old from Switzerland. I just got graduated in food science and now preparing a gap year travelling to south america. The past month I was travelling by van in spain and now I'm looking to be taken by the winds. So it would be a pleasure to join you on your trip from around Gibraltar to Canarian Islands and/or from Canarian Islands to Caribbean Islands. In the last two years I gained my first sailing experience in inland waters (Lake of Thun). I've completed two 1-week sailing courses and got my sailing license for inland waters. Anyway, I haven't had any offshore experience at sea yet. However, I have a quick grasp and am ready to sail according to your instructions and develop my sailing skills further. My motivation comes on the one hand from the passion for sailing and on the other hand being able to discover the world and to complete a sustainable journey. Fair winds :) Andrin
