Hello I am Edu, I am a ocean recreational captain and also this year I got my certification as a recreational boat professional skipper. I am currently working in Roatan (Honduras) as a diving instructor so I travel with my diving equipment.Previously this summer I have been workingin my old diving center as a skipper in a wonderful 9m Llaut (Balearic Islands traditional boat). I speak fluently English, French, Russian and Spanish. I am a cheerful person, very positive, open minded, and very flexible. I am quite used to team work in enclosed spaces during very long times. I am eager to do my second ARC, this time back to East to learn and gain experience but above all to live the experience. I hope my profile suits you and I can join you in this fantastic adventure! Cheers Edu
