Hey, I'm Archie. I am an eighteen year-old student who is looking to challenge myself and gain valuable life experience during a gap year before University. Growing up on the coast of South Wales, I have always enjoyed myself in and around the sea; from pier-jumping as a boy, to surfing and more recently, sailing with my Father. Whilst I have not yet had a huge amount of sailing experience, I have sailed locally, on the Bristol Channel coast in some reasonable seas and strong tides over the past two years. I am easy going, hard working, respectful, reliable and cool headed under pressure. I am really keen to build on my skills and deepen my understanding of ocean sailing by being a part of a significant voyage, with the opportunity to be mentored on the way,
