Competent Crew - short trips - Italy - Milano based.
Hi - I've just joined Crewbay.
I have been sailing 'on and off' for more than 20 years. Now taking a big career break and available pretty much immediately.
I'm interested in finding a position as a 'Competent Crew' member, on both short & longer term trips. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and making friendships, whilst building on my existing sailing experience and sharing all the necessary duties-cooking, cleaning, provisioning, navigation, work on the deck, journal maintenance & media etc!
I have just completed my RYA 'Competent Crew' course in the Canary Islands.
Most of my sailing miles have been with (family flotillas) trips done in the Mediterranean, on yachts ranging from 35-55ft - most recently, from Santorini to Mykonos.
I have also completed many flotillas in other parts of the Aegean, Ionian & Adriatic Seas, visiting various parts of Greece, Turkey & Croatia.
Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to sail around the Andaman Islands in Thailand as part of an organised catamaran sailing holiday.
I have also had the opportunity to visit the incredible turquoise waters of Okinawa, Japan (whilst living there)-including the unspoiled national marine parks of Tokashiki, among the Kerama Islands.
I am keen to enhance my sailing experience, rather than just 'holiday,' whilst taking a career break from planning big projects.
Looking forward to sharing potentially superb adventures & experiences with great people!
I have 2 British passports as well as Japanese Residency until 2024.
I speak fluent Italian and conversational French.
Looking forward to hearing from you and helping out! :-)
