Hello, I am Tom a Canadian and UK citizen who has just finished a season as skipper for MedSailors and The Yacht Week. I have sailed as skipper with 10 guests on board around Corfu, Greece and Croatia. I have also taught Basic Cruising in Toronto for a season. I am an RYA Coastal Skipper who is looking to gain more experience and help on peoples passages/rallies. I am extremely hard working and able to cover watch, clean as well as cook good meals! I am 36 years old and sociable yet quiet and respectful of other peoples personalities. I have single-handedly sailed 45ft+ Monohulls and Catamarans and docked in very tight Croatian/Greek marinas. I would love to sail on a full ocean passage and learn more skills from an experienced skipper. I am also able to come and show people the ropes if they want help from an experienced skipper. Looking forward to hearing from you!
