Arnold Lassnig, male, 60

Ref 32018

Nationality: Austria
Currently based in: Mondsee, Austria
Looking for: Caribbean; Mediterranean & Black Sea; West Africa & South Atlantic Islands; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 4600 ocean miles / 800 coastal miles
I am not really looking to participate in the Volvo Ocean Race and the like, but primarily crews which enjoy sailing, nature and good Living. My nautic background is two Atlantic passages (Martinique - Gibraltar and Azores - Porto) and extensive coastal sailing in Croatia and Brittany. With Ocean crewlink I would like to build competence and skill in offshore sailing with competent Skippers and crews. I like to sail with clever people of different background and cultures with a good sense of humour even without or with only little alcoholic influence. Ideally I would like to work in all roles on board as a basis for taking over the skipper/captain role in the future. I am just in the process of akquiring the YM Offshore this year, YM Offshore shorebased just successfully completed.
