Kelly Mann, female, 54

Ref 51372

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Clayton, GA, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 400 ocean miles / 200 coastal miles
My husband and I are planning to buy a catamaran and start cruising in 2024. I welcome any opportunities to sail (both for the experience and also to help narrow down our boat choices). I have my International Certificate of Competence (ICC) and RYA Day Skipper certification and will be able to stand watch independently as well as help out around the boat. I know my way around most power tools and I'm great at problem-solving. In additional to sailing, I enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, and music.
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: married
