I've been sailing for approx 10 years and have been steadily increasing my experiance and knowledge during that time. I've owned my own boat for the last few years - Initially a Moody 27 and now a Beneteau Oceanis 36CC. So I am competent at boat handling and I've carried out lots of maintenance tasks that keep a boat running well. I don't smoke and am easy going. I'm an IT project manager and so am very organised. i'm also a creative problem solver. Sailing Experience consists of the following Tall ship Stavros S Niarchos Flotilla in Greece 2013 Plymouth to Oban (almost non stop) 2017 Moody 27 - Own boat Newcastle 2016 - 2017 Beneteau Oceanis 36cc Own Boat near Valencia 2019 - current I want to obtain my Yachtmaster but wanted more experience first and would love to crew on the ARC Atlantic or Arc Europe. I'm looking for any opportunity to sail and gain experience while learning from others. I'm happy working as crew or watch leader.
