I am a keen sailor on my own boat or participating in off-shore regattas as crew on other boats. My job as CEO of a management consultancy firm allows me some flexibility and ability to take time off. The most exciting voyage so far was the ARC 2017 on a vintage Swan 47. A memory for life, but trips in the Baltic are much more common being based in Stockholm. Over the years I have taken about any course in navigation, sailing and seamanship you can think of, and hold the Swedish equivalent of Yacht Master and Ocean Sailing. As a person I am very sociable and curious on both making new friends as well as discovering new places and countries and learning new skills. I keep myself fit with gym, tennis, swimming and during winter skiing both down-hill and cross-country. But I also like cooking and enjoying good meals with a glass of wine or two.
