Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Manila, Philippines
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 4250 ocean miles / 1150 coastal miles
I like solitude and silence and empty waves, and crowded streets and noisy parties. Sugar and spice and all the flavours in between. I am definitely not a morning person, but always stand my watch. I work too much. I grew up everywhere and still want to travel more. Polyglot. I'm in South East Asia until summer 2021, but usually based in the UK. Sailing Experience: Learned on a Sunfish as a child and keelboats as an adult. Mostly day sailing around the UK/Europe. Some longer passages and expedition sailing. Just starting to get into deliveries as a way of mile building. Sailing Qualifications: RYA Day Skipper, working on Yachtmaster (been slowed down due to Covid restrictions)
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: single
Dietary requirements: None
