Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 5000 ocean miles / 10000 coastal miles
I plan to cross the Atlantic with our own boat which is moored in Gran Canaria. However i have been advised by many experienced sailors to crew first in order to gain experience and confidence. I am a Qualified Shipwright , Yacht Master, and commeendorsed Skipper. As a family we have been down down the French canals and followed the French and Italian Coastline to the bay of Naples. This has been a life long dream of mine and although my wife was going to come with me she would rather that I had this experience with you. Sailed across the Atlantic 2018 / sailed Malta to south France single handed
