Basically looking for ARC 2022 and possible other sailing opportunities between October 2022 and March 2023. I am a pretty active sailing boy, 64 years old, sailing three different boats. Tuesdays and Thursdays I am sailing my Laser / ILCA dinghy which I bought in 2010. I am also participating in the national norwegian as well as swedish, and have also participated four times in the european and the worlds for us old boys - named Laser / ILCA Masters. In 2009 I became a part owner in an 11 meter One Design (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pet3eQs8HVc) which I have sailed regularly in regattas since. With various boats typically 35+ feet I have participated in the Skagen Race - 120 nm from Norway to Skagen in Denmark like 10 times, and with the same boats also some other races. And finally two years ago I bought my own Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 35, for recreation only though. I started sailing in my forties, so kind of a beginner in comparison with others at my age. I got my “Deck Officer Class 5 Pleasure Craft World Wide” certificate in 2020 and my Short Range Radio Operator’s Certificate in 2009. Except for sailing I am working as a Project Manager in the IT area by a consulting company. Divorced four years ago. Four children born in 1989, 1992, 1993 and 1996. Walking the mountains from time to time.
