I have recently spent a lot of time in dinghies, racing a laser radial and as crew on a flying fifteen. Previously have raced on larger boats. Regularly at West Highland week, Scotland and at inter club racing. Completed my RYA day skipper a long time ago, would be keen to refresh these skills. Recently completed assistant Dinghy Instructor and regularly assisted at my local Sailing Club. I am currently employed as Cabin Crew for a Long Haul Airline and due to Coronavirus I have been allocated a months unpaid leave in April with the option to extend until end of May if I wish to. My silver lining would be to find a sailing opportunity to suit. I am a very hard working, respectful, positive person, keen to meet new people and take on new challenges. Ideally I would love a position where onboard expenses are covered but may consider a position where a shared contribution is required. I am keen to learn and enhance my skills and happy to stand watch when required. Age 53 fit and v energetic.
