Experience: 0 ocean miles / 500 coastal miles
Hello. I’m from Channel Islands UK, so plenty of opportunity to get on the water. I’ve been retired for 3+ years and looking to crew on ARC type voyage, or independent voyage.... I’ve had limited sailing experience, primarily via RYA Day and Coastal skipper courses, plus 2 weeks as skipper sailing Greek Ionian Islands on 40ft monohull. However, many years motor boating (shock horror!🥴) in channel islands and adjacent French coast waters (one of biggest tidal ranges in world!). Im physically fit and healthy, and friends describe me as sociable, very easy going, with no unhealthy habits! I’m responsible with mature outlook, though do like a relaxed and happy environment. I like my food, and will eat pretty much anything, and like the odd beer or glass of wine when appropriate. Non-smoker. Not looking for a ‘racing’ experience....prefer to take in the world as I pass through it. Hope this helps (felt a little like a dating offer!😂)
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: single
