My name is Asbjørn Bjerregaard Ried. I'm a 30-year-old Dane currently living in Copenhagen. I'm from a sailing family and have a sailing background in dinghies. I purchased my own boat - a International Folkebåd 27' in the summer of 2018 and have since then captained it for over 2500 nm around Limfjorden, Skagerak, Kattekat, Øresund, Baltic Sea. I'm a competition sailor currently on a Luffe 39' where I have the position of bowman. I'm looking to cross the Atlantic in 2022 – preferable in the ARC. I've taking more than 10 months off my current job to travel around the world. The travels are part adventure and part work. I work the UNESCO Associated Schools project, where I'm a pedagogical consultant. On my journey I’ll visit schools in SA, CA and NA and conduct research and put in groundwork for future partnerships with Danish schools – everything based around sustainability and UNs 17 development goals for a sustainable future. I have no experience in ocean sailing but I’m quick and eager to learn. I’m a humble people’s person who loves the experience of meeting new people and exploring the opportunities such meeting presents. I’m good at being in and handling tough situations – both following directions and doing what needs to be done. I’m an outdoors person who can find solitude on the water. I’m a social person with an eye for keeping everyone participating and in a good mood. I love cooking and have done a fair bit of finish – but I’m not an expert. I have the financially means to cover any shared expenses and getting myself to and from any location. I furthermore have time this summer (late June to august) to come and meet a crew/caption and help sail a/the boat if it’s needed. Kind regards Asbjørn Bjerregaard Ried
