Hello I'm Marilu, I am italian and 50 years old. I am passionate about sailing and have been sailing since I was 18. From 2015 I partner with Luca, a professional sailing boat and catamaran captain and we have been sailing a lot together. We have been owner of 2 sailing boats which we have now sold. In summer time Luca works for charter companies and I sometimes join as stewardess. We have experience of boats/catamaran deliveries and winter keeping and we have done the ARC in 2018 with a family from New Zealand. We do understand life onboard very well, we can fish and cook healthy dishes. We love to share experiences and memories. We are water lovers with very good diving experience (Luca is dive master and underwater guide), snorkeling, surfing, kite surfing, sup... We do speak good english, italian, spanish and little french. I am an aerospace engineer with some electronic knowledge and I learn very fast. Luca is hand-on all onboard equipment. Lots of experience in the Mediterranean area, we love to travel and look forward to sailing in the Caribbean and the Pacific islands.
