Christopher Petry, male, 44

Ref 37897

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Vail, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 1500 ocean miles / 500 coastal miles
We are an adventurous couple with a strong desire to circumnavigate the world by sea. We are both passionate about the outdoors and nature. We currently live in Vail Colorado where we are avid hikers and rafters in the summer, and skiers, up and down hill, in the winter. As much as we love the mountains the sea is calling to us loud and clear, and we are both driven to see this dream turn into a reality. We have have sailed around Tonga and completed a passage to New Zealand. We would like to crew on a few journeys to gain the necessary experience to buy our own boat. May 2020 would be the ideal month for us, but if the perfect situation were to arise we have some flexibility!
