About Me:

I am the owner of a lovely Sirius 310 sailing boat kept in the Baltic, and am looking for a companion to sail her with me, and perhaps more. I am a retired engineer, and besides sailing I play concertina and baritone ukulele (in a ukulele orchestra) and like singing folk songs and shanties with a shanty group. I have previously built and raced hill-climb cars, and flown gliders for more than 3000 hours, and have won a European two-seater championship.

I like visiting museums and art galleries in the towns I visit.

I am a touchy-feely man, and I like cuddles. My family is important to me.

I have a small gym at home and like to keep fit.

My ideal would be to meet a companion spirit soon, so that we can get to know eachother during the rest of this year, and go off sailing together in the Baltic in May 2022. I hope to sail from Germany, where my boat is overwintering, up the east coast of Sweden to Stockholm and the 1000s of beautiful islands of the archipelago

My boat, Hornpipe 2, is a lovely Sirius 310 Deck Saloon (see picture in my album). She is ideal for a couple to cruise over long periods, and can be helmed from inside or outside. She is complete with two electric bikes for land expeditions, and a washing machine to handle that chore.

Sailing Experience:

60000 sea miles in UK, Baltic, Mediterranean and New Zealand. I have owned sailing boats since 2003. I do my own maintenance.
