Nationality: Hungary
Currently based in: Torokbalint, Hungary
Looking for:
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 500 coastal miles
I have learnt sailing 15 years ago and own my family cruiser since 2009 (Bavaria 34). I spend most of my time at summer at lake Balaton* and sail there since then(*central Europe`s largest lake 70km long). I love the life on a boat. On the other hand I am a keen windsurfer since the age of 10 and have sailed all around the world and enjoy it up to 55-60 knots. I have an aircraft mechanical engineer background, however have been working for a major oil company as a senior project manager in strategy and transformation in the last decade and lived in London for a good few years. My job requires frequent international travel , which I manage from Budapest where I have a nice family with two teenage kids. I joined the Ocean Crew link as I would like to complete safely the Atlantic Rally Crossing with happy sailing.
