Hi! Im a 22 year old medical student (4th year), based in Aachen, Germany. Ive grown up sailing with my dad and grandpa, and in addition to weekly regattas on the Wannsee, Berlin, have joined several two-week coastal trips on the mediterranean sea. I'm an open, direct, talkative type who loves to spend days at sea reading, watching the waves, looking for wildlife and feeling the wind. Sept 23 to April 23 is a free semester, and I want to spend it at sea, either crossing the Atlantic or any other longer sailing tours :) I feel comfortable on deck, have experienced many manouvers and situations, and am quick to learn any things new to me.
