Currently based in: Melbourne, Australia
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 200 ocean miles / 500 coastal miles
I've had an interest in Sailing for many years and will purchase a Catamaran in three years when my youngest son finishes High School. I'm married and two sons, working full time at the moment and hoping to wind back and enjoy sailing when the situation is right. Before then I want to get more experience sailing passages and ARC Atlantic and Pacific are appealing to me. I'm working hard to ensure my lovely Wife Allison is also included in the sailing journey. To join it will need to coincide with what ever leave I have available until June next year when we expect our circumstance to change and I will have time to engage in longer passages. I'm very down to earth and easy going. I love to cook and expect this may be a benefit to some of the longer trips. My sailing skills are still novice but we are regularly doing training courses and will be in Whitsunday's at the end of June this year. I'm also a keen fisherman and regularly get on the water in a 5.2m outboard in bays and estuaries. Any opportunity will be greatly appreciated.
