62 years old
Date of Birth: 28 Jan 1958
I have recently retired from the oil and gas industry and I am now looking to spend more time sailing for pleasure.
I sailed from an early age mainly racing GP14, Wayfarer and Mirror dinghies. As a young adult, I progressed to offshore sailing with trips to Ireland, Brittany and a couple of crossings from Scotland to Norway. More recently I have been sailing as crew in a traditional wooden gaff at Dartmouth & Brixham.
I do not have any RYA qualifications but have spent considerable time at sea over the years and have a good working knowledge of boats, boat craft and navigation. Rusty but willing!
I would also consider part ownership, boat sharing for the right boat in a suitable location.
Available and flexible to crew / sail in sea areas Portland, Wight, Plymouth & Lundy :-).
Own transport and can travel to most areas in Wales, South & South West.
