[Crossing the Atlantic - East to West] Hello, I am 27 years old and i recently quit my job to travel by boat to deepen my skills of sailor. My godfather was a great sailor and builder of boats and i want to experience his way of life. I already have a few experiences of sailing with him (The Britain coast, Mediterranea and the Carribean's island). Currently driving through Portugal, I can be free in a week from now in Spain (including Canaries) and Portugal to cross the Atlantic. I have no dead line and no obligation in place to be. I'll be happy to join a boat with other people, to learn new ways to sail and meet people. I'm easy going, friendly and super motivated. As a fast learner, I can adapt myself to any situations.I can cook pretty well too and would be happy to prepare meals for everybody! Remaining at your disposal, feel free to contact me. If you need further information please let me know. Kindly, Tom Thiry
