Ruth Druart, female, 53

Ref 43558

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Le Mesnil Le Roi, France
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 300 coastal miles
I grew up on the Isle of Wight and am a keen sailor. Seven years ago I completed my day skipper qualification and since have skippered two sailing holidays in Greece. I am now looking for a longer crossing with an experienced skipper. I live in Paris where I have been teaching in an international school, but have recently changed career to follow my dream of writing. My first book comes out in March 2021. I am sociable, adaptable, enjoy humour, and get on well with most people I meet. I don't mind following instruction, and take criticism positively. I can cook, clean and muck in happily.
