Looking for interesting sailing oppurtunities (deliveries,mile building, competent crew) in and from Europe.

I am an electrical technician with a new skipper license (ICC Sail/Motor), looking for mile-building and competent crew trips in and from the MED, preferably in the Adriatic for the summer. From late summer/ autumn on, I'm interested in longer trips, even ocean crossings. Or any other interesting passages or deliveries.

2019 I crossed the Atlantic in both directions as a crew and lived for 6months on different sailboats. As a result, I can do all necessary tasks onboard( watch keeping, passage planning, provisioning, cooking, cleaning,.........) In addition, I can support you with all kinds of repair work, especially with electrical work. And I'm always eager to learn more about boats and how they work in every detail.

Just send me a message if you are planning an interesting, even demanding, sailing trip. I'm open to everything and always interested in new experiences with nice people.

Simon

Simon was our hero!

Simon, aka “Nomis”, was my awesome crew mate on our trans-Atlantic crossing in May, 2019… also during a six day passage from Tortola, BVI to St George’s, Bermuda. His command of the English language is remarkable and natural. Simon was always cheerful, accommodating, eager to help & take the initiative, talented mechanically (ie.: When our fore peak was filling up with sea water, he laboriously sealed it with a caulking gun while under way.), skilled on the finer points of sailing, awesome in the galley (often baked hot fresh bread from scratch and once even prepared some delicious Austrian pancakes rolled up with flavorful raspberry jam. You should have seen him flip those pancakes high into the air, out and back into the sizzling frying pan all while the boat was healed over!) Most valuable was the fact he is a journeyman electrician. When our Simrad auto pilot got drenched by a rouge wave that filled the cockpit, the auto pilot stopped working. Earlier, our wind vane’s rudder fell off so… we were without any more options other than hand steering. We still had about four more days of sailing before making landfall. As an electrician, Simon went to work to solve the problem. After several attempts taking the auto pilot apart, drying it out, checking the connections and putting it back together… it worked again, thank God! After ~9 hours of hand steering, we were getting worried about the fatigue we would experience during the balance of our voyage. Simon was our hero!
