I've been sailing in and near Finland each summer for my whole life. I spent my Military conscription as a Ship Radio Non-Commissioned Officer in the Finnish navy. I've also worked on some fishing boats for a few summers before starting my studies as an IT engineer where I graduated in 2020 and Since I've been working with selling software. I'm very tech savvy, can handle electronics as well as coastal navigation, sailing and basic engine repairs. I've owned and maintained My own Beneteau First 325 1986 for 4 years. In the last few years I've sailed to Estonia and Sweden and done at least one few day non-stop sail each summer with usually a crew of 2-4. I'm looking to cross the Atlantic hopefully before I turn 30 in 2025. I'm Fluent in English and a native Finn.
