Gerd Meier, male, 59

Ref 67762

Nationality: Germany
Currently based in: Trier, Germany
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 80 ocean miles / 200 coastal miles
After retirement from my work as a mechanical engineer there is a lot of time to be spent and to enjoy live. So far, my biggest interest had been in cycling, swimming and freediving. With the extra time that I have available now I want to travel the world in a different way and started sailing. The plan is to escape the European winter in autumn and spent some time on a Caribbean Island freediving. Most likely on Dominica. On the other hand there is no plan which is carved in stone and I am open for anything that may pops up on the way.
