Hi, I'm Tom, I'm an 18 year old living in England, and am really keen to do more offshore sailing, particularly the ARC. I have done some coastal sailing in Greece, Croatia and the South and East Coasts of England. I also do a lot of dinghy sailing, having sailed since I was very young in dingys like optimists, mirrors, fevas, 420's and now RS200s, as well as having sailed lots in J70's, J109's and other various keelboats. I'm at school sitting a levels at the moment, I would say that I am enthusiastic, friendly and easy to get on with. Other than sailing, I enjoy playing rugby, football and cricket.
