My name is Thea and I have been sailing since my childhood. I have been sailing all from dinghies to 52 feet, but mainly our family boat, an International 806. I have attended the Swedish Naval Homeguard summer camps for basic and intermediate course, and other summer sailing camps where sailing with dinghies have been the main focus. I have also worked as an instructor during these summer sailing camps. I am social and positive, hard working and good at communicating and like to work together with other people. Living together in small places is not new to me. I am looking to sail around the world together with people who have more experience and are confident in sailing, and open minded to include me in their sailing plans, as I'm looking for new opportunities that will give me new sailing experiences. Thank you Thea
