After years working and raising my familly I have found some time to enjoy sailing. I passed my day skipper in 2013 and since then have sailed when the opportunity presents itself. I spent nearly seven weeks crewing as one of three crew on a delivery of a new catamaran from France to Miami at the end of 2016, I also crewed on the ARC Atlantic crossing in 2018, I am healthy, sociable and easy going and keen to enjoy sailing when I can. I am based in West Wales.
