Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 150 ocean miles / 8000 coastal miles
I am a 32 years old Italian energy engineer living and working in France. I will have some free time in the last months of 2022 and maybe the first ones of 2023 and I'm trying to do an ocean sailing trip during that time. I am searching for a trip shared with a friendly and energetic crew and captain. I have some experience sailing on a 12 m boat (16 m when I was a child) most of the years during the summer holidays in the Mediterranean. I have been the captain of the 12 m boat a few times, during night crossings too. I have experience as watch leader. Boat maintenance is a task I usually enjoy doing and consider part of the sailing activity (in the port or at sea). I have an easy going character and I'm flexible and well adaptable to different accommodations and situations. I almost never get angry and I always behave in order to have the best relationships possible with people, at sea and on the land. No seasickness!
Smoking: non-smoker

Dietary requirements: I have to keep a low protein diet, I will bring my own special food on board.
