I am a boat owner who has enjoyed cruising the Med over the past 8 years on my Jeanneau SO 42 and Beneteau First 38. I now wish to sail further afield and would be particularly interested in doing an Atlantic crossing (ARC / Vikings Rally / independent). Unfortunately my family cannot travel so I am would be interested to join other like-minded sailors to share their adventure. I am 45 years old, married with 2 kids, used to work in finance / management, keen to share knowledge and learn from others ... seeking to use free time to do some more sailing, fishing and enjoy a new adventure
