Looking for deliveries, racing, engineering work, or a fun cruise. I'm racing and have a few thousand miles offshore.

I'm open for suggestions on sailing opportunities. I'm primarily looking for deliveries or racing but anything getting me out on the sea is interesting.
I have experience and knowledge to skipper most sailboats although thin on formal credentials. I am continuing to build blue water experience and I'm still learning weather routing, tides and currents. I'm a good first mate. For learning boat owners I can share knowledge about various aspects of sailing including sail trim.
My ambition is to get a captain's license and possibly pursue a marine engineering career.
Experienced racing and cruising skipper/crew.
I am dual US and EU citizen and can stay unlimited and work without visa in both these regions.
Electrical Engineer by trade.
Worked 8 years on development and service engineering for Cummins/Onan generator sets and associated electrical equipment. I also have experience maintaining marine propulsion diesel engines.
Served 18 months in the Swedish navy as radio and radar technician.
I have references available on request.
My Maritime experience section is not complete. I have more experience to add and have so far just listed some of my recent experience. I will add more to this section and attach CV shortly.

Pontus was my mate on delivery from Newport, RI to USVI. I could have a good sleep during his watches. I will be happy if he sails with me again. I hope this explains.
