Nationality: Belgium
Currently based in: Antwerp, Belgium
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 1800 coastal miles
I'm a semi-experienced sailor (mostly charter-holidays as a skipper for friends, and once a yacht transfer from italy to croatia), and quite eager to improving my sailing skills and mile-building. I chartered sailing yachts from 38 to 58ft. Therefore, I'm looking for a spot on a monohull to join the ARC from Las Palmas to the Carribean end 2020. About me: I'm 38-year old, I own a business in Belgium, which I can leave for a few weeks as things can be managed by collegues. I live in Belgium but I travel a lot. I like adventure, fun, combined with continuous self improvement/learning. I think I have a large range of interests and I'm absolutely not narrow-minded. My hobbies: kitesurfing, skiing, waterski, piano, golf,... My mother tongue is Dutch, but I'm fluent in English, French and German too. I hope to find a crew which is as well experienced as fun. If you think I might be the one to join your crew for the ARC, please let me know! We can get in contact by e-mail, phone or skype.
