I am a New Zealand woman. I have quit work as a University Lecturer in Sport. I simply want to sail now with good people. Have fun, make memories and enjoy the sea with great people. I have owned my own businesses; aviation, marketing, & property. I am easygoing, positive, proactive, reliable, trustworthy, with integrity. A team player. Solutions focused. I am a confident, considerate, nice and good person. I am not reserved, I like to get out and give it a go. I follow instructions well, have cooked in 67-knot cyclone. I do not do drugs - and I do not want to be on a boat where drugs are consumed. I am healthy and I do not drink much - never on a passage. I have my Ocean Medic and Advanced Ocean Survival ,VHS (NZ qualifications) BLUE water experience? 3000Nm NZ to Pacific & return in 1992 (Cavalier 38') and NZ to Fji return in 2022 (Cat 43') COASTAL experience - racing with RNZYS WHAT I AM AFTER - clear instructions, safety, a team, great people, solutions-focused, positive, level-heated, calm boat, captain, and crew.
