Hello boat owner, If you're looking for experienced crew or a captain for an atlantic crossing, please read on. I'm an experienced off-shore sailing instructor. Easy going, good sense of humour, but rather strict on safety. I've owned monohulls and catamarans myself for the last 40 years, and spent quite some time building and refitting these. Furthermore, I do like cooking and I'm keen to discover, learn and teach. Furthermore I have a creative and technical mind for problem solving. This makes me quite a versatile crew member. Looking forward to hear more about interesting trips and adventures.
