Hello everyone! I'm Nicky, a single female based in Portugal. I'm an independent person, tidy and well organised with many current interests including hiking, scuba diving, journal writing and learning Portuguese. I like people, have a good sense of humour and generally get on with people from diverse backgrounds. I began my sailing journey in 2023 and will be happy to contribute to basic costs in return for the opportunity to sail. Boat deliveries and crewing opportunities that would help build miles and experiences with an experienced skipper willing to teach me new skills would be most appreciated. If you think I might be a good fit for your crew, please touch base and hopefully we can get to know each other? Till then, happy sailing!
