I am a business owner who has been working exceptionally hard to build a unique business and would now like to escape for a few weeks and fulfil a lifetime ambition to sail the Atlantic. I began sailing in Merlin Rockets and Wayfarers before picking up Windsurfing. I came to yachting about 3 years ago and have a 1/3 share in a Tayana Vancouver moored in Beaulieu. We have a big schedule of sailing this Spring/Summer which I need to build experience and build miles starting with a trip to the Channel Islands this Easter followed by a trip to Scandinavia. I have just entered the Royal Escape which i will be competing in my own yacht. I am qualified as an RYA Day Skipper and have attended the RYA Offshore Safety course. I am practical and creative and very much a team player. I am a pretty good cook too.
