I'm a 30 year old sailor from Finland. I'm looking for a chance to participate in ARC 2021 together with my good friend Otto. Crossing the Atlantic has already been a dream for us for several years, and we have long considered that Arc 2021 would be the best 30-year gift we could get. We are both experienced seafarers and have sailed in the Finnish and Swedish archipelago with our own boat since 2010. Now we own an Inferno 31 sailboat, but we have sailed with different sizes of sailboats, all from a classic IF (26 feet) to +40 feet sailboats. We both have an international boating license, VHF- and first aid training. In addition to the experience from our domestic archipelago, we have also sailed with +40 feet sailboats in the Mediterranean 3-4 times (Croatia and Greece). We are used to sailing in guards and working under command. In addition to what has been mentioned above, we are also very good company😊 Feel free to contact me if you want to know more about me or Otto.
