Peter Newland, male, 68

Ref 11676

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Chichester, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 9000 ocean miles / 3500 coastal miles
I am available for local opportunities in the UK or up to 3-4 weeks in Europe/Med. But always open to other ideas and longer trips .... In 2020 I sailed half the Pacific before flying home from Tahiti because of COVID-19. So, I am also interested in crewing opportunities from the French Polynesia on towards Australia ... or beyond. In 2016 I sailed from the UK to St Lucia, the last part of which was with the ARC, on a Southerly 42. In 2018 I crewed from Greece to Spain. I enjoy good company and good food and am comfortable cooking at sea. I have a background in Teaching and IT. I like reading and, when not sailing, walking, cycling and the theatre. But above all I enjoy travelling. After spending 20 years living Italy/Switzerland, I am now based in Chichester.
