Josh Youings-Clarke, male, 38

Ref 21672

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Woolacombe, United Kingdom
Looking for: Mediterranean & Black Sea; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 400 ocean miles / 1000 coastal miles
I am 36 years old, have been sailing for a number of years now and have completed the RYA courses through to Coastal Skipper level. I have a Jaguar 265 yacht for coastal cruising on the North Devon coast of the Bristol Channel and the Irish Sea, where I live. I have chartered as skipper through the Med in Greece, Croatia and Italy, and also am training with the Clipper Round the World race and will be competing in the 2023/24 race. I will be completing my third week of clipper offshore race training this October with the last week in 2023. I am married and have twin daughters and a son, professionally I am a partner in a wholesale business. I am looking for crewing opportunities to build up passages and miles, and off shore experience in the hope of one day being able to take my young family away cruising. I am very easy going, a fast learner and always really keen to pitch in and get involved. I have previously been a beach lifeguard in the UK and in Australia so I have had first aid training to the level of First Responder. If you'd be keen to have a chat then please do give me a call.
