Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: London, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 400 coastal miles
I'm married with three grown up children, I took my Day Skipper license in 2008 but have done very little sailing as a skipper but spent quite a bit of time on boats and in that environment diving. I am quite mechanically minded as I started my working life as a mechanic. I am easy to get along with, have a good sense of humour and difficult to offend. I have an Advanced Open water diver qualification, very fit and hard working. Very tidy and organised and whilst what I know could fill a book, i'm aware that what I don't know could fill a library. On the downside i'll be perfectly honest and say i'm not much of a cook but happy to learn and I can open a tin as well as anybody. If there is anything you want to know, please ask.
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: married
Dietary requirements: None, I don't like cheese as a rule bit it's not an allergy.
