I am adventurous guy, open minded, team player & goal oriented, but big on humour as well. Aspiring to become RYA Ocean Yachtmaster in near future. Chartering the Med with friends during summer months, sailing my own sailboat on a local lake (27 foot Bodan Werft Miranda Feria), but always trying to get out on the sea. In May 2019 crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Guadeloupe via Antigua & Barbuda to Portugal on a Hallberg-Rassy 38 as a crew of four. Did RYA Dayskipper practical course in Grand Canaria - Puerto Mogan back in 2014 (AISTRACK sailing school) Curently going through RYA Yachtmaster Offshore course. Working as an associate in a law firm, hoping one day I can switch careers and become charter or delivery skipper. Please contact me directly at m.dufinec(@) if you have any questions. Thanks
