Jimmy82: I am a 34 y.o. italian/british living on a beautiful mediterranean island, Sardinia.
thanks to crewbay I already had many enjoyable sailing experiences around the mediterranean, biscay and the canary islands.
I enjoy every part of sailing and confident in all maneuvers (I hold the italian skippering licence and the rya coastal skipper practical)
I am looking for fun, enjoyable sailing with with nice and happy people who share the love for sea, nature, sailing and visiting places from a "local" perspective rather than just being a tourist.
My last 3 experiences:
Oct-Nov'16 -on a beautiful hallberg-rassy54- 1.300NM from Turkey to Spain. first 2 weeks 3 people on board, last 2 weeks just me and the captain. We went island hopping in south greece, sicily, sardinia and last few days around barcelona to find the best marina to leave the boat for the winter.
April '16 1 week sailing (250nm) on the biscay coast (atlantic - west france) on a 33ft Elan just me and the owner (an Oxford research professor), only day sailing so I had the chance to get used with scheduling departures/arrivals according to tides so to be able to come in/out marinas.
Nov'15 cruise/delivery (6 weeks) 1.500NM from Italy to Tenerife on a 43ft Elan. 2-handed first 3 weeks then joined by a 3rd crew member. Sailing 3/4 days legs between marinas to fill up water, ...etc. Absolutely loved it, (I love sailing at night till the sun rises, especially coastal) The owner was so welcoming and easygoing and it didn't take long to became good friends and still keep in touch.
I enjoy marina hopping but also love night sailing.
I am available to crew/deliver in autumn, winter,spring (I work for the holiday lettings industry during the summer).
between May and October I can offer 2/3 days local knowledge around Sardinia and Corsica.
I am passionate about sailing, kitesurfing, surfing and kayaking. I have good maintenance skills - I have restored myself my little diesel engine boat (the engine was completely derelict) and I am a good Italian cook. (best onshore, but i can organize for some good simple food while on passage too).
Can reach various places around the world.
Looking forwards to have fun, meeting new friends and visiting new places! (and of course sail .-)
