Nationality: New Zealand
Currently based in: Wellington, New Zealand
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 550 coastal miles
I am a 28 year old New Zealander that is making the career move into sailing. I have worked in the Ski Industry for the past 10 years and am ready to swap the mountains for the ocean. I began sailing during covid and got out on the water as much as I can. I am currently racing out of Wellington NZ and am positioned on the bow. I am comfortable in most positions but there is always room for improvement! I am interested in getting some serious ocean miles under my belt and am keen on cruising and racing. Most of my experience has been in inshore racing as it has me out on the water the most. I have sailed in NZ, USA and Japan. Im fit and healthy a fast learner and love a new challenge. I have all my own gear and am eager to get out there! I will be available from October 2024.
