Hello, my name is Sven (23) and I would love to join you guys for the arc in November. I crossed the North Atlantic once 2017 and since then expanded my sailing skills. I am currently studying law, where I am specialized in international criminal law and human rights. The last months before my state exam (in April 2023 in Berlin) I am planning to leave civilization behind and focus on my study’s at a beautiful jungle space in Brasil which I found during my semester abroad in Rio de Janeiro 2019/20. I love the Ocean, I am a rescue diver and I love photography. After finishing school, I was a music teacher in Trenchtown (Kingston) where I could convince a captain to take me as a crew member on his beautiful Cyclades 50.5 back to Europe. During heavy water and flashes in the background I found my passion and am planning ever since to cross the Atlantic in the other direction. In may I finally passed my practical SKS exam, the theory will follow in a couple of weeks. In Spring 2024 I will do the Yachtmaster Offshore in Cape Town and am trying to get as much practical experience in advance as possible. I am looking forward to hearing from you. You can call me anytime +49 157 52450558 . Best regards Sven
