By, I’m Goncalo nowadays more a couch sailor than an ocean one. Having been born in Madeira island from sailing parents I learned to sail early on on dinghies and small yachts. During university I was an optimist and 420 sailing coach and after that I continued to crew in small yachts in coastal races but also did a few races between Madeira and the Canary Islands. Since coming to the U.K. I joined a sailing club in the highlands of Scotland. Since I moved to London I haven’t sailed yet, thus why I’m looking to crew again. I’ve got a week’s holiday in October and I’m looking for a boat in the Med/ Northeast Atlantic to join for that period of time https://www.youtube.com/user/888POR http://linkedin.com/in/goncalomenezessousa https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBSfev_h2d_76GRJ-vDnaaQ
