After 16 years working as a professional civil engineer in the construction industry I am looking to change careers into sailing. I have sailed in the Mediterranean, North Sea and Atlantic including an Atlantic crossing in a team of 4 and also cruising in the Caribbean. I am a practical person and have gained a vast amount of experience during the delivery crossing the Atlantic and also maintaining and repairing my classic car. I am very friendly, British and I am a very experienced musician in my spare time. I am also very clean and tidy and can also cook for a crew. Please get in touch. Thanks Jim
