Experienced sailor is looking to contribute in navigation and watch keeping to Cross the Atlantic Ocean in November 2023. I’m fit and sportive (37), willing to work, but above all, looking forward to a beautiful adventure. I’m currently working in the hospital as a clinical perfusionist behind the heart-lung machine, and my contract will be on pause from the begin October 2023 till the end of January 2024. I’ve been sailing all my life. I have sailed dinghies, joined several sailing racing teams such as the Tour the France a la voile (farr 30), melges 24, J70, and skippered (cruising) a Dehler Optima 106 across the North Sea, around Denmark, the English Channel, and Northern France. I like to fix things and have an interest in electrical boat work. For example made my own raspberry pi, Openplotter navigation system, and completely re-wired the electronics on the Dehler Optima 106. I would like to be the helping hand. I’m looking forward to getting in contact
