Hello my name is Michael, My first sailing experience startet in the 80´s on the lake of Constance in Germany, followed by sailing in Greece and Croatia. I offer hand against bunk with 30 years holiday sailing experience in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. While waiting for my own catamaran I would like to gain experience of an Atlantic or Pacific crossing. I am flexible in terms of time and am happy to cover my expenses. I am healthy, seaworthy, non-smoker. I like to cook, am entertaining and for everyone to have fun. I would prefer to sail on a catamaran. Looking forward to receiving opportunities and getting to know each other. Warm Regards Michael
