Currently based in: praestoe, Denmark
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 1000 ocean miles / 9000 coastal miles
I am fit and healthy, and sailing is my passion. I have sailed all my life in all kinds of boats from dinghys to 2 masted schooners, both cruising and rasing as skipper and as crew. Mostly in Scandinavia, but also 4 months ind the Med, and more than 3.000 Nm in South East Asia. I have a Yacht Master 3rd Class and SRC certificate. I am easy going, positive, thrive in the comppany of others and does not set high demands on comfort. I am a decent chef and rarely gets sea sick. I am a former swim coach, if you need to improve your crawl technique... My dream is to cross the Atlantic ocean from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean, and maybe cruise a couple of weeks in the Caribbean.
