(I am the person to the left of the photo) Sailing has always been a passion of mine, I started dinghy sailing at the age of eight and have obtained several dinghy qualifications over the years. However, in more recent years my passion for sailing has reached new levels as I have completed my RYA competent Crew and Day Skipper qualifications. I am looking to grow my experience in sailing and I am willing to do what ever it takes to achieve this. I am a very driven person and have had a job since the age of 11, for example I have worked as a stable hand, a golf course manager, lifeguard and bartender, allowing me to gain an amplitude of different skills. For my age I have a lot of nautical miles, most of these miles were made up from day sailing and the largest journeys I have completed I have put on my profile page. I am looking for exciting, alternative work and will be available until November which is the point that I am undergoing snowboard instructors training for a ski season. Outside of my vocational activities, I am currently on a gap year before I am to pursue a degree in architecture. I have played Rugby since the age of 4 allowing me to gain great team and leadership skills but I am also interested in a wide variety of outdoor activities such as cricket, football, horse riding and climbing to name a thew. Overall, I would say that I'm an easy going person who doesn't mind completing any task put in front of me. I am always up for a social with a couple of drinks but I could quite easily stay in all night reading or talking. I hope that this information will help you make the right decision when choosing your crew members.
