Hello, Remco Here! I'm 28 and looking for a new sailing experience. I'm easy going, hard working, and willing to learn everything there is about sailing. My profession in the Netherlands is social work. I like to listen to people and learn from others. There are always experiences to share, and more imported, new experiences to make with each other. I would like to learn how to sail and how it is to be on a boat for a longer period of time. So I never been long on a boat, but I made a lot of daytrips on my travels. I did a lot of diving and snorkelling. I think the marine life is just wonderful to observe and something to respect. I love to be in and on the water. I thrive very well on islands and one day i will spend my days here. For the last ten years I worked as a social worker with mentally ill and addicted people. Currently i´m working on schools with young people who have a hard time. In the years I took some time off. Once for a trip to central America and another (from which I just returned) to New Zealand, Australia and the Philippines. Now I'm trying to make some money, but if you take me with you on your boat I will not hesitate to say yes and accompany you! If you have questions, or you want me to give a live-presentation of myself, feel free to ask. I’m ready to make new stories! You can contact me on: [email protected] Or send a text to: +31 616640766
