Ref 38001

Nationality: Sweden
Currently based in: österskär, Sweden
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 4000 ocean miles / 20000 coastal miles
I have been sailing since very young. Mostly in Sweden but also longer distances in the North Sea. I am in good shape (OK, not like a boy but maybe like a 40 year old man - in good shape). I am not a complicated person and fit well in most groups. I only take the command when needed but normally I do what I am required to do. My "dream" is to cross the atlantic (preferably on a classic yacht). I have since 2004 my own classic 45 foot yacht (15 meters) built 1896. (2015 I changed the rig to the original gaff rig).
