I'm happy to do any kind of work on the boat, I'm not picky and always keen on learning more about sailing & everything else related to boats and boat maintenance.
I have a positive attitude and motivation to learn. Positive & open minded, love to meet and interact with people and always look for the good side of everything. A simple smile can go a long way in making the world a better place ;)
I'm vegan but I keep it simple and will be happy to cook as long as you're in for a veggie meal :)
I play guitar and sing & will happily play a few tunes for you!
* Note * Ideally, I'd like a position together with my partner who's a marine engineer by education, has a lot of knowledge and practice with technical things in general, and learns very quickly. He has a good eye for detail and is a very loyal and good worker. We sailed together for about a month and he logged about 200 miles. However, he's not always available and I'm interested in solo positions as well. *
