Experience: 0 ocean miles / 130 coastal miles
I am an experienced dinghy sailor and instructor, but I don't have so much experience on yachts. I recently took my RYA Day Skipper course so I know my way around the boat but haven't got too many miles under my belt other than that. I have grown up by the ocean and spent a lot of time in and around it (kitesurfing/windsurfing/kayaking etc) so I'm very happy in this environment and don't get seasick easily. I'm looking for a transatlantic crossing in the ARC 2019. The one 'unique' part is that I'm hoping to cross with a bicycle so I can continue my non-powered journey on the other side (once I travel onwards to South America)! I can take it apart into a small package and do everything possible to make sure it wouldn't take up too much room. Alternatively I could just post it in a shipping container and pick it up the other side. I'm an easygoing and reliable crew and happy to muck in with all aspects of the voyage, and hopefully provide some good company / humour / stories along the way!
