Nationality: Germany
Currently based in: Neukirchen am Teisenberg, Germany
Looking for: Caribbean; Mediterranean & Black Sea; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 347 ocean miles / 1000 coastal miles
I`m looking for participating ARC Portugal 2024 in June 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. My previous experience is above all reached in holiday cruises in the Mediterranean as a skipper or watchkeeper. Therefore I would like to explore other sea areas. An Atlantic crossing from Martinique to Horta/Azores is planned in January 2024. I'm a non-smoker and a person who is friendly and respectful, 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 14 and 15). 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 Joerg Minkenberg
