I am 69 years old and am selling our yacht for various reasons. I have been sailing for over 60 years and have done 4 trans-atlantics and 1 trans-pacific as well as a huge amount of other sailing as we lived for 4 - 6 months on the yacht. I have owned a total of 5 yachts from 28 to 58 feet as well as sailing in my parent's yachts and with friends. I am a keen fisherman with my own gear and enjoy cooking aboard. I would like to use my experience and knowhow to help others enjoy the adventure of ocean sailing.
