Hi! I'm a 26 year old enthousiastic person who recently graduated for my Msc Technical Medicine and eager to travel the world before starting a full time job I'm interested in finding a position as a Voluntary work or Novice Crew. I got a little amount of sailing experience as I joined a couple of sailing trips with friends. This made me very keen to learn more about sailing and go onto bigger adventures on the water. I fell in love with Kitesurfing 10 years ago and for the past three years I've been working as a Kitesurf Instructor in Holland. I love the sea and I'm familiar with changing wind and weather conditions and predictions. I'm especcially looking for the oppurtunity to cross the Atlantic Ocean towards the Caribean, so I can continue my travellings there. Looking forward to meet new people and travel companions!
