Sailor William

I have been sailing since 2016 and in that time have completed trips of various length and style in the Aegean, the Mediterranean, Portuguese coast, Biscay, Irish Sea, Scottish west coast and the Baltic totally about 7,000nm.

I completed my Comp Crew and Day Skipper courses on the west coast of Scotland. Along with this in the winter months and for the sake of knowledge and curiosity, I have also completed a variety of shorebased courses - Day Skipper shorebased, Yachtmaster shorebased, VHF radio, First aid, Sea survival and Diesel engine maintenance. I also have my Powerboat level two

I will probably be in the Ionian in May for a bit but I also want to explore some different places. I loved the Baltic and depending how events unfold I may rent a small IF boat for a few weeks this summer to sail the archipelago again. At some point I want to sail the Norwegian Fjords, an ocean, the glaciers at the bottom of south America or experience ice sailing in Antarctica and the Arctic...

While I completed a Diesel engine course, in one day I'm not going to become a mechanic and would love the opportunity to learn more about the practical aspects of looking after a boat so I am always keen on getting my hands dirty when necessary.

Ultimately I'm as keen on the mundane elements of sailing and being on the water as the wild adventurous ones. Ideally I'm looking for an interesting trip I can be of genuine use on. Get in touch...don't be shy...
