Experience: 500 ocean miles / 1000 coastal miles
Eager sailor looking for a boat to join to cross the Atlantic to Europe in the spring of 2023. I have experience sailing with our family owned Najad 34 sailboat in the Baltic Sea during summers. Also worked in Thailand as a snorkel guide on dive boats for one season. Worked in a managerial position in property management leading my own team, so I know a thing or two about responsibility and hard work. I'm a friendly person with a positive mindset, would love to learn more about sailing while crossing the Atlantic. I can do all kinds of chores on the boat like night watch, cooking and cleaning.
