I have been to sailingcamps in Holland for 3 times, also I have sailed coastal waters with my family for 3 times on a sailing yacht 45ft +/-. Right now I have a gap year and I want to increase my sailing experience by crossing the Atlantic. I want to learn ever secret about the ocean. Also I am willing to do/learn all jobs on the boat.
