Stuart Wilson, male, 60

Ref 49319

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: Toronto, Canada
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 6000 ocean miles / 10000 coastal miles
I have been sailing for 40+ years including racing, cruising and yacht delivery. I've owned by own boat on and off for 25 years including more recently a 40' monohull, so am very familiar with all elements of boats, including maintenance and repair. I have experience in boat delivery, including trans-Atlantic passages. I've also sailed in the UK for aprox. 10 years out of Hamble on the solent, as well as chartered boats in the Carribean on a number of occasions. Experienced with most if not all types of weather and sailing conditions. Comfortable with all aspects of sail trim, sail changes, etc., navigation, helm and overall crew functions, including the galley ;-) . Very comfortable as a watch leader, also supporting other crew members. I'm looking to support a captain in a boat delivery/sail, including east coast and ideally trans atlantic.
