Nationality: Hungary
Currently based in: Diósd, Hungary
Looking for: Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 23500 coastal miles
I am 59, male, living in Hungary, divorced with two adult sons, living in a happy partnership. I am general and trauma surgeon by basic training but working as a MedTech business man for the last 25 years. I am sailing for 20 years now. Started on lake Balaton in Hungary but in 2005 I made my international costal skipper (12 nm) and radio license. I have own boat since 2005 currently a Jeanneau SO 349 on the Balaton sailing cca 1k nm per year there. I also do sea cruises with family and friends skippering chartered boats. I was sailing on the Adriatic, Liguria, Sicily and Lipari islands, Greece, Caribbean, Balearic islands, Turkey. I sailed approximately 20k nm in shore and 3,5k on costal seas. It is on my bucket list to make a trans-Atlantic crossing, so I would love to join a competent boat and crew to do that.
