Looking for an opportunity to sail across the Atlantic from now till 2024. Qualification: RYA Yachtmaster Offshore since 2014 Experience: In young years operated small racing sailboats, later participated in numerous cruising trips as a crew (Baltics, Black, Mediterranean Sea).

Since 2013 I’ve been the owner of Bavaria 44 sailing yacht. Kept her in Turkey, Greece, Croatia. Every year before the coronavirus problems and war in Ukraine spent app. 2 months a year on the yacht with different crew (on many occasions with no experience in sailing). Can teach people how to sail. Also with my friends many times chartered other monohulls and catamarans for pleasure sailing with a skipper role.
