Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Stamford, United Kingdom
Looking for: Caribbean;
Experience: 16000 ocean miles / 33000 coastal miles
I am looking for an East/West Atlantic passage this autumn. I am free from late November. We have sailed our own boat, an Oyster 46, extensively in Northern Europe, the Med and in the Caribbean. I have logged around 50,000 miles including four Atlantic crossings, mostly as skipper. I have Yachtmaster Ocean and have completed the relevant RYA land-based courses. I am happy to sail as skipper/mate or to join as crew. I like cooking on board and expect to muck in with all the daily routines and contribute my share of provisioning costs. I am not looking to be paid. I like to sail safely within the capabilities of the boat and am not into racing!
