I’m relatively new to sailing. I have crewed on various trips in the med, such as voyages around Crete, Sicily and UK to Ireland. I have my own 27’ boat based in Waterford which I use as a weekender. I have chartered as a captain in the Cyclades. It’s now time yo look at some ocean crossings. I’m semi retired business executive. My background is in international engineering projets. I’m well traveled and have lived the fly in fly out life for many years. So, I’m well used to the challenges of confined living and the mix of various cultures and personality’s. I’m keen to learn from experienced captains.
