Looking for: Caribbean; West Africa & South Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 300 coastal miles
Hi, I'm Nicolai, 31 years old and have a dream to cross the Atlantic from Europe in late 2021, early 2022. I have limited experience sailing though been on a 44 feet boat for 14 weeks in the Caribbean a couple of years ago. Besides that I have been using ferry’s as means of transport from A-B. I'm passionate about travelling and have this dream (mentioned above) on my bucket list. I will like to learn how to sail and an Atlantic crossing is my biggest dream. Besides that then I hold a full time position and highly educated, easy going and can interact with various people. If I have caught your attention then please write to me so we can arrange a call, hence start to learn each other. For me the chemistry has to be there otherwise the crossing will not be fun for either of us. Besides above then I'm planning to attend a sailing course in September to learn as much as possible before the crossing. I'm looking forward to hear from you. Kind Regards, Nicolai
