Hi My name is August and I´m 20 years old. I have been sailing my whole life and have developed into a reliable sailor and a committed crew member with a positive attitude. I recently completed my year in the Swedish Navy as a marine soldier. I was in the Navy for 11 months and my training focused on submarine hunting and reconnaissance. Now I´m looking for a boat heading across the Atlantic to the Carribean. For the past 5 years I have been working as a sailing instructor for kids and teens in Marstrand and Gothenburg. My family has a 60 ft sailing boat (Brenta 60). I have learned a lot by sailing bigger boats but I want to learn more and sail further! I have tested positive for covid-19 antibodies (August 2020)
