Donald O'Neill, male, 61

Ref 45400

Nationality: Ireland
Currently based in: Dublin , Ireland
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 3000 ocean miles / 8000 coastal miles
I have my own yacht registered for the ARC+ later this year as part of a master plan to complete an Atlantic circuit starting from Dublin in July 2021 and returning in June 2022 but due to the ever changing quarantine requirements plus lockdowns and the slow rollout of our vaccine program there was growing uncertainty around my plans to sail from Dublin to Las Palmas in time for the start of the rally. I have now postponed my trip until next year which gives me the opportunity to crew over winter months. I am an RYA yachtmaster offshore with approx 10000 miles including a number of ocean passages like Southampton to Gibraltar, Falmouth to la Coruna , St Martin to Bermuda , Dominican Republic to Antigua. I have also done a lot of island hopping in the Caribbean over the last 5 years. As a fellow boat owner I think I could add a lot as part of your crew and I would love an opportunity to talk to you to see what is possible
