Nationality: Ireland
Currently based in: La Linea, Spain
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America; Mediterranean & Black Sea; South America; Antarctica & Sub-Antarctic Islands;
Experience: 3000 ocean miles / 400 coastal miles
I am keen to get some more sea miles under my belt in 2021. I am a flexible and easy going Irish person who from summer 2021 will be taking some time off work to spend some extended time sailing and gaining experience. I am a practical person (woodwork and metalwork are hobbies of mine) and I am willing to help out with all aspects of life on board (cooking, cleaning, standing watch etc.) I am fully vaccinated. Update I'm back from 1500 mile round trip to Iceland. Looking to head down to the Canaries across across the Atlantic next.
