About Me:

Born in Cheltenham and grew up in various towns in southern England including attending Bedales School and ending up in West Somerset. Moved to Bristol where I got my Carpentry & Joinery certification with distinction. After a few years of working for a joinery company set up on my own.
My first sailing experience was on my fathers small sailing boat in Milford haven than on many trips to Greece, sailing to lots of Aegean islands and Turkey. Also Sailed in the Pacific crewing on a 42' Amel ketch, thats an interesting tale!
I have traveled all over the world working when necessary eventually settling in Gascony SW France where I am now.
I have been scouring the internet to find the my dream catamaran to take off on a new adventure and am here looking for a soul mate to join me. Ideally someone with fortitude, a good sense of humour and some sailing experience as the oceans can be a rough place!
I have always been a very practical hands on person, restoring many houses and keeping my old VW camper van on the road.
I have a buyer lined up for my present house and am ready to take the plunge and get back on the water.
I have been looking at a Privilege 39 Cat which is an early contender for my next home but am ready to start looking at other options first, touring around next spring in the veedub.
I enjoy socialising especially in small groups but mostly prefer to experience life quietly and intimately, engaging with nature, living off grid. Meeting with different cultures, peoples and animals, for those really memorable mind blowing experiences.
So is there someone out there willing to join me, I hope so. :-) .
