Hello, My name is Jaap, a dutch economics teacher, taking one year off to focus on sailing. I will be available from the 14th. of July 2021 till the 1st. of August 2022. My primary focus is making an atlantic crossing. As I have just little experience, I'm performing some basic courses in sailing and blue water sailing at the moment. In August I will make a Gulf of Biscay crossing with friends on their 50 ft. ketch. Further I will try to make more nautic miles in the upcoming summer. I plan to be in Portugal or Spain in the summer. I'm a university graduate in Economics, fluent in English, German and Dutch (mother tongue) and speak Spanish quite good. I have a hands on mentality, I am a teamworker and very motivated to be an active crew member on a Blue water sailing boat.
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: single
Dietary requirements: None
Languages: English; German; Spanish; Dutch (mother tongue). I can understand French and speak some French.
