I have been sailing all my life in the Northern part of Europe, including the Baltic with my wife and our children. Have owned a 'Dutch leeboard lemsteraak of 45' and later a Dykstra Aluminium performance cutter of 62' which was sold end of last year. Took part in the Leeboard regatta circuit. 62' Dykstra with square main top, runners and 3 head sails so familiar with complex sail handling. Both yachts build under my own management. Looking now to purchase an used Xc 50' or Swan 46' but in the mean time available to crew or skipper. Sold my company and presently working as a consultant. Agenda flexible apart from mid July.
