Years ago I did some sailing from Darwin AU to Cocos Keeling Island on an old (1951) Australian Racing Yacht. After this I got the Hochsee-Schein (Open Sea Boating Certificate) in Switzerland. In 1991 I sailed as crew with friends from Antigua to Venezuela and a few years later from Brisbane to New Caledonia. I also did a few sailing trips with my girlfriend in the Mediterranean. Last time in April 2017 we sailed on a longer trip from New Zealand to New Caledonia We are open and flexibel in time and route. We both... ...adjust ourselves easily to new situations cooking and baking ...eager to learn & work & healthy ...are reliable and conscientious ...go on well with people ...ove animals and the nature ...are friendly and considerate ...have a well-groomed appearance and good-manners ...spare no effort ...appreciate a homely environment not smoke
