Bonjour, Hello, My name is Denis. I am sailing since 2013 as a skipper on bareboat mainly in inland waters and I rented a bareboat in the Bahamas twice to explore the Exumas Islands. I also did a passage in 2015 form Nassau to New York as a crew member where I did sail trimming, night watch, helm and cooking. I have a coastal certification, a VHF licences, a meteo training and I am planning to get my ICC licence next year.. I am a resourceful person, practical, with a good sense of mechanic (I worked as a motorcycle mechanic 8 years and as a tool designer 12 years). I would be interrested to join a crew for an Atlantic passage, boat delivery or Carribean cruising.
