Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 10000 ocean miles / 8000 coastal miles
Retired Technology Executive. I normally travel by day and anchor, moor or dock by night. I am open to longer ocean passages that require night time sailing, weather conditions permitting. I am on a lifetime adventure for a minimum of 10 years. I suggest a minimum 1-3 month journey with extension very possible. The initial period offers crew ample time to learn my boat, become a team, adjust to my captain preferences and furthermore offer you some flexibility to come and go as needed. If we enjoy our experience and teamwork, I welcome you to consider longer crewing time periods and voyages as I travel.. My routes and time frames will be determined by weather, crew safety, and boat condition. My native tongue is English. I have lived in Columbia, S.A., Italy and I have traveled the world extensively since I was a young boy. My professional career in technology also took me around the world. I am comfortable working with people of all cultures and strive to learn, assist and educate.
