About Me:

Born in Malta, raised in Malta, USA, Switzerland, Qatar, UAE and began sailing career in US Virgin Islands in the late 80s I have a deep wandering streak but I also love gardening...I've had 2 distinctly opposite lifestyles for the last 30 years; desert summers and winter sailing; so far so good!
Backpacking, a good jam session (I play guitar & sing), river running, canyoneering, sound bathing, gardening, yoga, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, chicken tv, cowboy tv, (no actual real tv...) baking, brewing/drinking beer, day dreaming in between.
I've only joined for a month with a view to connecting with adventurous buddies for sailing, backpacking, river running, canyoneering. As I crew professionally, I am not particularly looking for a crew position, for the moment.I am currently in Antigua but flying home early March.

Sailing Experience:

30 years. 8 Atlantic crossings, 1 Pacific crossing, 1 Panama Canal transit, more Caribbean to East Coast USA deliveries than I can recall exactly, many Caribbean and Mediterranean seasons chartering, Gambiers, Pitcairn...quite a bit, really.
