I have been sailing all my life and have experience of racing dinghies and racing and cruising monohulls and catamarans as a helmsman/skipper and as a crew. I was a qualified dinghy instructor in the past and now am an RYA Cruising Instructor. I am interested in doing some trips as a skipper or crew to widen my ocean experience.
