Looking for Greek and Magna Greek adventures
Ciao naviganti! (Hi sailors!) My name is Marco, and my greatest passion is to explore. The sea is the perfect environment to wander, and that's why I enjoy activities such as swimming, surfing and sailing so much. At some point in my life, I would like to be experienced enough to sail and surf around the world with a crew/group, conducting some relevant research in the meantime. As part of my Ph.D., I am mostly involved in research studying the distributional economic and health effects of social interactions and exclusion (e.g., sudden job loss) and of climate change. I would like to share the journey with somebody that needs a competent crew member, and somebody that loves the ocean as much as I do. I hold the Italian boat habilitation to conduct sailing vessels up to 24 meters, in any country and without limits from the coast. The duration of my commitment depends on my onshore working duties, but I am always enthusiastic to dive into new adventures. My offshore experience includes being part of a crew with rotating roles on a sailing boat around Corsica and Sardinia, sailing for approximately 400 nm over two weeks of time. Next summer I plan to do a similar course but on blue waters, to sail all over the Mediterranean. I have also spent weeks at friends' boats around Italy, and each summer I wander around the Neapolitan gulf on a tiny boat. For this summer, I plan to use my boat license to rent a boat and explore the Mediterranean with some friends. The boat I use the most is the old-fashioned (but sexy!) sailing boat that I and my father repaired, Because we repaired it, we can now use it for free even if it is not ours. At the moment I am part of a racing crew based in the region of Liguria in Italy.
