Looking for a Competent Crew position

I’ve left behind my career in optometry in order to have the flexibility to pursue my outdoor interests of sailing, Munro bagging and skiing. I crewed in the British Isles and Mediterranean 2023 summer and Caribbean January-March 2024. I have had quite a bit of recent experience doing night watch in rough sea conditions, mainly motoring though, so I am very keen to get more experience under sail.
I completed RYA day skipper many years ago and would say I’m currently somewhere between comp crew and day skipper.

Great crew


Christine joined Jandina, a 37ft Hallberg Rassy, in Ullapool, and completed a long trip round to Dartmouth. The conditions in July 2023 were “ challenging”. For a considerable part of the trip we were only two crew, and then for the rest we were with novice sailors. She is a lovely person to sail with, but a little modest about her skills which I would put easily as day skipper level , not competent crew. She did night sail watches on her own. Two memorable nights were our trip across the Irish Sea, and a voyage from Padstow to the Helford River, in F5/6 , and horrible seas. She copes very well in these conditions. Christine is great company and an excellent cook, I learnt a lot from her in this regard! I would thoroughly recommend her as a member of your crew.
