Nationality: Canada
Currently based in: westmount, Canada
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America; South America;
Experience: 4000 ocean miles / 4000 coastal miles
I am a recently retired professional, spend winters skiing out west and would like to do an Atlantic crossing this November. I have participated in wind sports all my life, have done several deliveries as crew, as well as captained multiple bare boat charters on boats up to 50'. I am interested in a transatlantic delivery in November or a cruise with like minded people that involves kiting. I am an avid kiteboarder, certified diver and a beginner surfer. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking and tennis when I am not near the water.
