Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 1500 coastal miles
I started sailing about 3 years ago. I sailed over 1000nm at lakes as day skipper, and over 500nm at sea as captian/crew. Now I have more interest in sailing at sea. I have 4 weeks experience in costal sailing. Recently I finished a 5days non-stop double handed cruising, which was very exciting and interesting. I have fluent English and enough sailing terminologies. I am easy-going person, also very serious about quality and work. I am eager to explore new lands and make friends in the journey. Milage build is also one important drive for me. My time is quite free and I can make good schedule to travel for fun and challenge. As a well educated professional, I am a good communicator and willing to share experiences with friends.
