Rene Henke, male, 44

Ref 50375

Nationality: Germany
Currently based in: Zuerich, Switzerland
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 1500 coastal miles
Since last year I finally have my ocean licence and now I am looking forward to new adventures on the high seas. I already had my first charter command for a week. All in all, I have about 1500 miles behind me now. Not much, but that's why I'm here. I like to lend a hand, I can also watch the clouds for 2 hours - but not longer :) but there is always something to do. Since I have just started a new job. I would be available for the next adventure from around the end of the year, e.g. for the next ARC.
