I completed level 1 training for the Clipper Race in 2021 which gave me my RYA competent crew certificate. 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. Some of our adventures together can be found on www.johnmoorhouse.com
