Experience: 0 ocean miles / 4000 coastal miles
I'am a 26 year old keen sailor, qualified to Yachtmaster Offshore (4000 nautical miles). Based in Manchester, UK I don't get out on the water as much as I would like to but my girlfriend Briseis (Yachtmaster Coastal) and I take any opportunity we can with holidays etc to go sailing. I currently work in IT sales and just before the Covid-19 lockdown ensued, my girlfriend and I were set to make a big career change and run Flotillas in Greece. Unfortunately, our circumstances have understandably changed as the travel restrictions remain uncertain, so we will be in our land based 9-5's for the foreseeable future. It's always been a dream of mine to take part in the ARC Rally and we'd love to join a boat as eager crew. I am an easy going guy and aside from sailing I love golf, outdoor pursuits, keeping fit, good food and cooking, and am happy whether or not alcohol is involved!
