Adventure before Dementia ;-)

I have joined Crewbay after meeting others who have used the system successfully.
Now retired I am sailing with a local charity but always looking for sailing adventures to fill my time and improve my sea skills. In the medium term I am wanting to cross the Atlantic (ARC) and race in the Sydney to Hobart.
I have returned to sailing since Covid after a few years out for family and completed over 2700 Nm in 2023.
I'm available for deliveries or assist owners in sailing their yachts as either (or) Crew, deckhand, watch lead… etc
In addition I am an Electrician and Engineer who is very handy with most boat systems, (after I get some time to understand them) as well as previously having a career as an Offshore (petrochemical) commissioning engineer. I am particularly confident in assisting you in the completion (testing and fault finding) of your upgraded system/s or general maintenance including works on the hard.
Content to pay travel expenses and fair subsistence costs. I also produce a decent meal or two (both offshore and on) and always pull my weight cleaning and looking after the vessel.
In addition to my ICC (Day-skippers) ticket, I have listed my other tickets on the system. I am now working towards my Costal Skipper's certificate.
After 100+ night hours this last year, I am content to lead a shift in overnight legs for sea passages.
Looking forward to meeting like minded young at heart sailors.
