Hello, my name is Chris Lanzone and I am 58 years old. I'm looking for a chance to participate in ARC 2021. Crossing the Atlantic has been a dream for several years, and have long believed that ARC 2021 would be the best way to achieve this goal. I completed ASA101,103,104,105,106 & 114 then began to charter catamarans in the BVI (when hurricanes & pandemics don't preempt our plans). I've have completed 2 very successful charters with family and friends. I will be adding ASA107, Celestial Navigation, to my sailing resume prior to the passage and I would like to practice this navigation skill during the voyage. I'm an Electrical Engineer by trade and will be retiring in August 2021. I'm handy with electronics, engine mechanics, and most boat systems. I'm have a very easy going personality and I'm a dedicated team player.
