Hi, I am an RYA Yachtmaster Sailing Instructor for sail, power and powerboats. I work full time as a sailing/motor boat instructor for the Irish National Sailing School, based in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland. I have been sailing for 35 years and live in Dunmore East on the south coast of Ireland where I have my own sailing boat since 2008, a dehler db1. I have sailed approx 50,000nm, mainly coastal sailing around the Irish & UK coastline and I have also done some sailing in the North sea. I am hoping to gain my RYA yachtmaster ocean ticket in 2022 and I am trying to find a crew position that will fulfill the passage requirements. I am flexible time wise once I can schedule a slot into my calendar. Please feel free to make contact and see if we can get together and sort something out, Regards, Gary Curran
