Cruise or passage, monohull sailing yacht

I am interested in some cruising / passage making - I’m available for periods up to 3 weeks. Anyone with a monohull looking for crew?
Ever since my parents first took me sailing at the age of 6, I have been a keen sailor. Starting with family cruising, I soon started ocean racing and joined the RORC. I completed many cross-channel races, one Fastnet race and one non-stop British Islands race.
In my teens I also started dinghy racing, and in my 20s raced 505s for several years, before buying a Laser.
Once I started a family, I stopped dinghy sailing and reverted to family cruising, this time with my wife and sons, based in the Solent. I also took part in occasional keelboat races, such as in Cowes Week and the Round the Island race.
I lived in Melbourne for 4 years, Australia, where I raced small keelboats, until I retired 7 years ago and returned home to the UK.
Since then I have been seeking some more cruising adventures. I have been cruising in the summer in UK waters; I have sailed across the Atlantic twice (5 years and 4 years ago); I enjoyed 3 weeks cruising in the Caribbean; and I spent 4 weeks cruising the east coast of Australia.
I am a fit 72 year old, British, married, not usually seasick, happy and cheerful, competent watch-keeper, used to living on a yacht for an extended period.
