Julie Eddicott, female, 53

Ref 14141

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Christchurch, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 400 ocean miles / 800 coastal miles
I am an enthusiastic, fit female who loves to sail and so I crew when I can, often in the Solent, UK, Channel Islands and Antigua. I have several sources under my belt now, Day skipper, VHF, navigation and raced/cruised a variety of yachts and super yachts : Oyster 88 Zig Zag, Classic 98 Sumurun to a racier Quarter Tonner. Whilst I love the sailing/racing I am happy in the galley too and make a mean Expresso Martini! I am still leaning and am happy to take on any role with guidance where required. I can take instruction well and always stay calm and happy.
