Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Telford, United Kingdom
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 40000 ocean miles / 2000 coastal miles
Lucky enough to have crossed the Atlantic 3 times as crew on the BT Global Challenge 2004/2005. I have previously owned my yacht for 3 years between 2012-2015 and fitted her out to the ARC standards but never completed the voyage so I'm keen to take part this year to fulfil the dream. Availability: I'm retired so have complete flexibility on dates. Happy to pay my way.
