Hello. Looking for opportunities worldwide from November 2020 as activ crew (deckhand, cooking, boatkeeping,...) or/and skipper, coskipper. So let's get in contact! Would be easy for me to come to ... to embark. Coming from catering industry in Life B I love different characters and to deal with them. My friends, crews and skippers say, that I am a well balanced person, a wonderful cook, a fearless deckhand and a patient watchleader. Also a well balanced sailor; love both, easy and action weather; beginners and cracks. Experienced in Mediterranean, Strait of Gibraltar, Northsea, Biskaya, Canaries, Capverdes, Seychelles, Caribbean, transat, deliveries, travelling and holiday trips. Hope to hear from you soon.
