Dear Crew of the Veni Vidi Vixi, Congrats on taking this brave step and going to sail the world as a family leaving everything else behind! Must be one of the last great adventures! I passed my SKS practical test (similar Yachtmaster Coastal) this year as I'm planning to take off for a year within the next 12 to 24 months to sail. I'm not experienced yet, but I'm eager to learn and I'm good at fixing/repairing things.Crossing the Atlantic is one of my dreams - at some point I want to be able to take this trip single handed. I'm 37 living in Munich, working with hardware and electronics in a company I founded 6 years ago offering a smart glove for industries such as warehouses and manufacturing. I'm coming from a big family and while not having kids myself yet, I'm surrounded by kids all the time (youngest is my great-nephew born just a couple of weeks ago). I love teaching them about making things and about electronics/programming. I have a lot of projects I could bring aboard the Veni Vidi Vixi. If you are looking for someone to join your transatlantic trip I would be very happy to join. As a family person I would like to become part of a real family (unlike all the commercial offerings for this trip). I can work in all areas of maintaining Veni Vidi Vixi, care for its crew and teach your kids some fun projects. Have a good trip! Best, Paul
