Paulo Correia, male, 56

Ref 49139

Nationality: Portugal
Currently based in: Lisbon, Portugal
Looking for: Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 3500 ocean miles / 6000 coastal miles
I have my own boat, an Elan 40 based in Lisbon with which I regularly sail the Portuguese coast and Madeira Island, both personally and on charter. As I am preparing my participation in the ARC Atlantic Cruise 2023, I am looking for a boat, preferably a monohull (I have sailed cats and did not like it), to gain experience with the logistics and preparation of a boat for such an event. I've had my share of emergencies, from dismasts, broken engines, salt water above the floor, cables in the propeller, battery overheat warnings, so I have some experience dealing with the most common emergency situations at sea.
