Easy going, in good shape, passionate about boating. I have been boating since I was a kid. I did The ARC 2016 on a 59 ft Swan. Over the years I have owned many boats e.g. a 59 ft diving yacht, 37 ft power cruiser, a Hobie Cat, Jannueau Sun Odysse 505 and today I own a power yacht 52 ft. Most of my sailing has taken place in the Nordic coastal waters but I have also sailed in England, BVI, Turkey, Greece, Croatia and Thailand. I´m pretty good with food and not to bad with technical maintenance and I´m CPR certified. During the last 15 years as Skipper of a high speed rescue cruiser on the Swedish west coast I have had a lot of practice handling critical situations at sea.
