Looking for sailing

Hi I'm interested in finding skipper, mate or deckhand position for short periods like a week(s) or in special cases upto month or more. I have an experience abt 30y 30 to 80 feet yachts and catamarans, sail and powerboats. I am not pro and never made sailing business my basic income, though did it quite often in past and are happy to team up with deliveries and day and weekly charters in future also.
Can complete my own crew with experienced skippers if needed for delivery service.
My profession is power engineer and I am employer. Hobbies sport (skimarathons) and gardening. Generally happy person, easy to get along.
Live in Tallinn and Riga.

Q: What’s your favourite boating experience? Clean and beautiful boat, great weather, good company

Q: How long have you been boating and what made you start? Cant remember. Been licensed since 1989. Grew up at sea.

Q: Where’s your favourite boating destination? Cant say. Probably seas with longer length swell, warm and then again really cold. Authentic places with friendly local people.

Q: What is your favourite boat and why? The boat where me and my crew feels comfortable in every point of seaworthiness. Can be lazy monohull or big cat or fast racer, etc. doesnt matter really. Can be team of adventure hungry guys or laizy sunseeking family excursion. Purpose sanction the ways...

Q: Gin and Tonic in a beautiful anchorage or trimming the sails to get an extra half knot? Definitely both

Q: What are your sailing ambitions? What’s the next challenge? Just try everything. Different boats, different seas.

Q: What is the longest passage you’ve completed without stops? Not much. Think, ca 1300nm
