About Me:

I'm a fun loving Irish girl marooned on the Isle of Man. Semi retired and happily single the past three years, I've had three brilliant winters away as a solo adventurer, taking in Lao, Thailand and Costa Rica, where I was involved in an off grid permaculture project on the Osa peninsula while watching for whales in the Golfo Dulce. Always open to sailing opportunities...
My passions are travelling, horticulture, culture, art, music, being on/around the water, snorkelling. I'm a bit of a 'foodie' and enjoy cooking, and I love animals too. My old Honda XL 250 and camper van keep me occupied on land.

Sailing Experience:

I'm a late starter to sailing even though I live on a small Island in the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man. But SO glad I got started, I LOVE it...

My introduction to sailing was the late 90's in the Isle of Man, as first mate on a commercial pleasure cruiser the MV Karina for the Laxey Towing Company. Built in Dartmouth in 1946 for cruises on the River Tamar.
Originally named 'May Queen', sadly she's set for the Gambia in the near future. We also ran a pilot boat and a tug in Douglas harbour. Crane lifting boats daily and harbour dredging from time to time. Best job ever!

More recently a couple of years crewing, and later live aboard on a Sadler 34 around the Irish Sea to Angelsey and the beautiful coast of North Wales via the Menai Strait. Soon after I decided to study and become more informed and confident. I would love to spend time with a kind, passionate sailing enthusiast. Who has patience, creativity a great sense of humour. Happy to guide me in the practical skills to ensure we meld as a great team.

I have loved Island life here. Now with retirement within reach I'm looking for a new beginning, in warmer climates... A spark of energy and chemistry will ignite my endless enthusiasm. I would love to be involved with a tourist /environmental project that encompasses sailing.

My back ground is tourism, farming, cottage gardening, social work. I am fairly fit, working on that.. yoga and hiking.
