I am Manuele 47 years old, I have been living in Greece for 5 years on the island of Paxos. My real job was manage Bar and restaurant in Italy and after 25 years full of satisfactions i sold my businnes and i decided toto achieve my passion for sailing. I have been windsurfing since I was 12 years old, then the first sailing courses and, compatibly with my demanding job, went out in the Adriatic on my first 33-foot sailboat From there lot of miles in the Tyrrhenian, Mediterranean and Adriatic sea. I understood at the age of 30 that I cannot do without the sea and I try to navigate as much as possible to understand and support it on every type of boat in transfers and regattas, i rent for three times a catamaran in the carribbean to spend beautiful time with friends like a captain. I have sailed like a crew from italy to Cape Verde for two times. I prepare my boat for Atlantic Crossing and I know how to repair any part of a boat, I am studing like a Yachtmaster ocean.. Since 5 years I have a charter company in Greece and sail for about 4000 miles a year in the Ionian and Aegean where I know every bay I have obtained a Greek charter license to engage in this activity regularly. Right now I am crossing the Atlantic Ocean but in March I return to Greece among the islands that I love so much and want to make known my website
