Greetings! I'm Davide, an Italian by origin but currently residing in the Netherlands. My professional background lies in marine engineering, and I occasionally find myself working offshore or sailing on big ships. At present, I have some free time on my hands, and I'm eager to indulge my passion for sailing, particularly in the oceans. I started sailing during my childhood when I first set sail on an Optimist. Over the years, I've maintained this passion for sailing, albeit not on a regular basis, exploring various types of boats, from dinghies to larger boats. I have skipper's license, and in recent times, I mostly sail in the Mediterranean, especially during the summer season renting boats with friends. I occasionally participate in small regattas with J70 class and bigger boats. I consider myself an outgoing and sociable person who appreciates the many aspects of life. I love to travel and explore new places. I am a good cook and brings me joy to cook for my friends.
