Scott Sloan, male, 56

Ref 42549

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Houston, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 3000 coastal miles
I started sailing in college dingy racing (e.g Lasars, 420s, Wayfarers) and I crewed on 30-40 ft sail boats (e.g. Tartan 10). Later I started bareboat chartering as skipper on different 40-50 ft boats. I have had the chance to sail in a wide variety of areas including the West Coast of Scotland, the Solent, Croatia, BVIs and the Great Lakes. Now, I am very interested in gaining more offshore experience. I am willing and happy to play a wide variety of roles on board from maintenance, cooking, watches and navigation - whatever needs to be done. While I would love to join a boat for one of the rallies I am also very willing to work on boat delivery or positioning trips, and I am experienced on short-handed boats. I have a number of certificates including RYA Coastal Skipper and RYA Yachtmaster (Theory) plus some ASA certificates for bareboat charting and catamarans.
