Hi Team! I am a 28 year old passionate sailor based in Europe looking to increase my knowledge and capabilities in long distance sailing, and sailing in general. I would like to do this by participating as a crew member in a regatta such as the ARC 2022 or in a cross-sea / cross-ocean boat transfer. My experience: - I have had an Italian sailing license for 10 years for >12 miles from the coast - 8 years in a row I have rented sailing boats with friends for sailing holidays in Greece / Spain / Italy - Attended Glenans sail school for 1 summer - Attended Lega Navale sail school for 1 summer My availability: - Available from beginning October to end of November 2022 (can be flexible in extending to December) Finally, I am well built, enthusiastic and just really eager to learn! I have also recently started a Youtube channel to document my current travels. Check it out in the links if interested :) Contact me if you're interested, if I haven't contacted you first! Ciao! Pietro
