Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 3000 ocean miles / 148 coastal miles
My wife Karen and I are looking to join a boat doing World ARC starting January 2023 and want to crew in the meantime to increase our skills and experience. I owned and raced dinghies and Dart 18 catamarans during 10 years working in Malawi 1986-96 and rowed the Atlantic as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in 2019/20. We completed Level 1 training for the Clipper Race in July 2021. We are easy-going, willing learners and will enjoy being part of the team. We are happy to tackle all aspects of sailing as well as pitch in with the victualling, cooking and cleaning duties.
