Hi i'm Rory, Looking for crewing opportunities in Europe, with a general aim to cross the Atlantic late 2021/early 2022 and sail in the Caribbean for the season, though i'd also be up for some sailing around the Med/Canary Islands/Cape Verde before making the crossing. Completing my Day Skipper qualification in October, and am keen to build on my sailing experience, meet new people, share stories, and explore new places. Working on an open-ended time-frame, so it's easy for me to accommodate changing schedules and weather patterns. I'm also happy to travel to join boats in the UK, Europe, Med or Canary Islands Easy to get on with, organised and have a practical mindset. Always willing get my hands dirty, help out, and do my share of the work onboard. Also an engineer by trade so good at troubleshooting problems and repairs. I'm a good cook and not a fussy eater, though more than happy to cook for those with dietary requirements. I speak some German and a bit of French, but love the chance to speak new languages and get better at them. In addition to sailing, I love climbing, camping, and hiking. I also scuba dive from time to time. Non-smoker, fully covid vaccinated, and happy to do necessary testing for travel
