I am a reasonably fit, 60 year old who has sailed regularly from early childhood on a variety of yachts up to 20m. This year I sailed on a 8m yacht from Preveza to Athens via Corinth canal over 10 days as member of 2 man crew. Over past 5 years have also sailed around Costa Forte on the same little boat - an Albin Vega. Recently sailed as volunteer crew on tall ship Pelican of London from Bristol to Dublin - awesome! Have sailed many times to channel islands and Scillies from Solent. Also sailed on 42' First from Kinsale to Galway and cooking for 8 an man crew. Have strong sea stomach so usually cook and provision for voyages. I have a passion for cooking with a wide variety recipes that include breads, oriental and middle eastern foods as well as cakes and puddings. Particularly like shopping in local markets, enjoy cooking fish and seafood. Enjoy contributing within a like-minded team. Excellent helmsman who enjoys sailing in most weather. 😁 Fun loving, straight talking guy who's looking to combine his two of his loves - sailing and cooking on a proper voyage.
