I am a RYA Yachtmaster which was commercially endorsed for 10 years (now expired). I completed the ARC in 1993 as Watch Leader, and normally skippered for holidays / corporate events until leaving work in 2017. In 2013 My wife and I sailed from South coast UK to the Canaries, and in 2018 from Durban South Africa to Caribbean via Namibia Saint Helena and Brazil, and then up to Bermuda (as crew of 4 keeping individual watches). In 2019 we sailed from the UK to the Canaries and onwards to Saint Lucia as part of the ARC. In 2020 we commenced the World ARC (3 on board standing individual watches) and sailed from Saint Lucia to Tahiti via Colombia, Panama and the Galápagos Islands. After lockdown was lifted we cruised the Tuamotus and Society Islands before returning to the UK in August 2020. We will return to the same yacht in Tahiti in April/May 2021 to complete the circumnavigation. I am very happy sailing as crew as is my wife.
