Currently, I am in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. I enjoy fixing things. I am a qualified electrician, and I have a degree in psychology. I've been renovating a house for the last 3 years in Ireland. In my free time I like to meet friends and travel. In terms of open ocean sailing, I completed an Atlantic crossing from las Palmas to Tortola. it took 20 days, it was all downwind sailing with the typical easterly trades. Very enjoyable trip. Also, I sailed from Eastbourne in the UK to La Coruna and Portugal, although I was the only Irish Paddy :) on board we all got along splendidly. We sailed on a Doufeux 42. We left from Eastbourne and arrived in La Coruna after 4 and half days, then on to Portugal making many stops along the North and West coast of Spain. I sailed from Costa Rica to Ecuador on a 42ft Gib Sea. In total I spent 6 weeks on the boat (Amigo) with the longest spell at sea being a week while doing a straight hop from the South of Costa Rica to Bahia De Caraques, Ecuador. It was a very enjoyable time. Some of my hobbies include resding, song writing and singing, surfing and hiking. References available by request. I am an easy going person who feels at home on the sea. Fair winds,
