Nationality: Netherlands
Currently based in: Arnhem, Netherlands
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 140 coastal miles
Hi Sailors, I am a coastal skipper for monohulls and for catamarans (36ft to 44ft). I am looking for more miles on different boats, with experienced skippers en meeting nice people. I have no experience yet with nightsailing, saling on radar, no really heavy seas An oceancrossing is dream since childhood. I am 41 years and I am easy going person, entrepreneur and owner of company in the Netherlands. I am married and I have a 13 year old son. Why me? - Attached my Sailing resumé - I am a certified coastal skipper and I chartered 6 monohulls (about 40Ft) in France and Greece - I chartered twice a Lagoon 40 last summer, I love Lagoons - I am a safe skipper and I am looking for the next step (never sailed at night) with experienced skippers I would love to start my RYA and I need miles :-). I am still looking what is the best place and where is it possible. In case you are an RYA instructor, maybe we can combine fun and education. - I am looking for great trips and maybe I want to become a delivery skipper myself - I can start and leave anywhere near a trainstation or airport - If required I might be able to bring one or two other people - This is just for fun for me, I don't expect payment - I speak English, German and just a little French and Spanish. In case you require extra crew, please contact me. Hoping to hear from you. Best regards Nick Rijnaard
