Experience: 250 ocean miles / 3500 coastal miles
As a sailing enthusiast, I'm always looking for new opportunities to explore the world by sea. At 48 years old, I've already achieved success in various business ventures and projects, and now I'm eager to earn my YM Ocean certification and set sail for new horizons. While I'm not in a rush, I firmly believe that good planning is key to achieving any goal. Whether I'm enjoying leisurely family cruises with long lunches and swims or participating in regattas and races with active crews, I'm equally at home on the water. I particularly enjoy sailing bigger boats that are still simple to handle. Recently, I had the incredible experience of sailing on Volvo70 boats and performing all positions on the crew. As an experienced sailor, I'm comfortable taking on a range of roles, including watch leader, helm, sail-trim, navigation, and even cooking. And, of course, I always make time to appreciate the beauty of nature around me. If you have a great sailing opportunity that requires a skilled and enthusiastic crew member, I would love to hear from you.
