Jörg Minkenberg, male, 56

Ref 52262

Nationality: Germany
Currently based in: Neukirchen am Teisenberg, Germany
Looking for: Caribbean; Mediterranean & Black Sea;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 1000 coastal miles
Looking for participating ARC 2023, ARC+ 2023 or ARC Portugal 2024. My name is Jörg, I am 56 years old and have been sailing since I was 12 years old, starting on dinghies on the local lakes. Last year I got my Sportseeschifferschein, the German counterpart to the Yachtmaster Offshore. In total I have completed 1000 nautical miles until now. Before I have received the Sportküstenschifferschein, which is equivalent to the Yachtmaster Coastal and also the radio license Short Range Certificate. My previous experience is limited to holiday cruises in the Mediterranean as a skipper or watchkeeper on charter vessels, for example in the Adriatic Sea or around the islands of Mallorca or Malta. Therefore I would like to explore other sea areas. My dream is to cross the Atlantic. I'm a non-smoker and an affable guy, physically fit. Of course I do all ongoing work on board, including watchkeeping, and I`m willing to learn to gain experience. I am married and have 2 children (age 13 and 14). My professional background is Business Economist and Banker. I'm taking a career break right now. Otherwise, I live in Bavaria and you can reach me via phone +49 8666 2281990 or by email. Kind regards Jörg Minkenberg
