Currently based in: Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 5640 ocean miles / 1800 coastal miles
I am a retired Marine Engineer (Class 1 Cert) based in Aberdeen, Scotland and constantly looking for an interesting sailing experience. Having been brought up in Shetland I have been around sailing boats all my life and at one time owned a yacht - a 41 foot Feeling. My experience is extensive and varied having sailed mono and multi-hull boats and my certificates are ASA as I was based in Houston for 15 years. I have a basic PADI cert, cooking skills need work but galley supports skills are exceptional!
