Summary

I am hoping to find a position at anytime as i am always available. In November I sailed from Spain over to Antigua onboard an 80ft sloop, Cypraea. Also in May i sailed back from Antigua to the UK.

Ihold my Oceanmaster Theory and am planning to present my sights soon. Im March/April i took up the role as Officer of Watch during the RBI Challenge (around Britan and Ireland Challenge), witch was a race where the boat i was on won. I am proud owner of a 40ft Beneteau 1st. When not sailing I drive the Bere Island ferry and work on the Whiddy Island Oil Terminal pilot boat.
