Hi, I am crewing in the 2023 ARC transatlantic but the owners of the boat have decided to withdraw from the World ARC. I am seeking a position for the 2024 World ARC. I have been sailing my entire life and have a significant amount of offshore experience form multiple solo circumnavigation attempts, numerous deliveries, and racing. I am easy going and adaptable to varying situations. I am strong at problem-solving and also have significant maintenance experience after owning several vessels and working in boatyards. I am in top physical shape. I am now pursuing a lifelong goal of sailing transatlantic. I semi-retired young and am flexible (no set work/job obligations) so can be available for extended periods almost any time.
