About Me:

6'1", slim, clean shaven, no tattoos or piercings, non-bitten fingernails, short greying hair. Wide taste in music. Read a lot. Articulate, well spoken cultured, polite.
Classic dress style. Physically fit (ex-para) and mentally - climb the mast unaided and do stuff in my head! Most people think I'm a sixty something. Sense of adventure. Dry sense of humour and don't take myself too seriously. Energetic and up for a challenge. Member of Cargreen YC and Royal Artillery YC.
Given up my flat in England; put what I value in storage and am currently staying in french friends' otherwise empty farmhouse in Normandy and planning to spend 2020 cruising Brittany, Atlantic France, Spanish Rias, Portugal, Cadiz, and possibly down to Madeira then Tenerife and La Gomera in the Canaries.
Hoping to meet a lady with whom to sail where the wind, current and our inclination takes us. Otherwise I guess I'll just have to go on my own...

Sailing Experience:

Forty years. Started in clinker built wooden dinghy and graduated up through a 22' Macwester Rowan, a 30' Warrior and since 2008 my beautiful 12m Westerly Oceanlord.
