Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: London, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 500 ocean miles / 5000 coastal miles
I learnt to sail on the East Coast of England in Suffolk, 25 years ago, with my husband Julian and his family. I am a qualified RYA Day Skipper (Tidal) and have sailed approximately 5,000 miles in the Med (Greece, Italy, Croatia, Tenerife and Turkey) and also in Asia (Malaysia and Thailand). Julian currently holds the same RYA licence too but has considerably more coastal and offshore experience - UK east coast, Channel Islands and a long passage to the Canaries from the UK. We both love travelling and meeting new people and are happy to get stuck into all sailing tasks. We are an easy going, social, fun loving couple looking to broaden our horizons with new sailing adventures. We have a broad sense of humour. I am also fluent in French and Italian and can speak conversational German.
