I am a semi-retired Interim manager with a past as Navy Reserve Officer and Naval Architect who loves being at sea. My experience in sailing started in early childhood and later in my own boats in the Baltic and on hired yachts in the Mediterranean. But most of my time at sea has been on larger ship and sailing vessels in different parts of the world. Presently, I am also an active crew member in the Swedish Sea Rescue Society. I’m now keen to learn more about sailing yachts and start earning miles. I hope I can contribute with some skill and a pleasant personality. As a person I am very social and keen to make new friends in different places. I'm healthy, in good physical shape through different sports and I enjoy downhill skiing preferably with my sons.
