About Me:

Profile last updated: 07/03/2021 - My current location - Portsmouth, UK

I'm British, seeking female friendship and companionship. I live in Portsmouth, UK. Previously, I worked in the Aerospace and Space Industry. I am single and not in a relationship. I have two adult children in their twenties and whom have flown the nest.

My dream has always been to sail & explore the Mediterranean Sea. In non Covid times, I try to divide my year into roughly two, 6-months winter at home in Portsmouth & 6-months summer sailing away.

Having sailed into the Mediterranean Sea in 2017, I've covered the southwest Aegean and circumnavigated Adriatic Sea in 2018 and Aegean Sea in 2019. A journey to date of approximately 10,500nm, roughly sailed 60% single-handed & 40% with crew (friends etc.).

For 2020, my original plan was to finish exploring the Western Med and finish up in Southern Portugal. Have achieved almost half this finishing up in Southern France.

For this year 2021, things are already looking challenging and with another very late start to the season. Hopefully I will be away sometime in late May and this will be my final 5th season on this journey. Just 2000nm passage home to England via Gibraltar. In the future, I am thinking about sailing to Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea.

I am an open person, kind, gentle, easy going, considerate, polite, have a good sense of humour and a zest for life. I enjoy the company of others. Of course, having some physical attraction is nice, but this is not essential for sailing together, especially so if that person has a great personality and is full of enthusiasm.

Polite Request. I am a genuine person, and only wish to communicate with those who hold similar values. I'm looking to make new friendships through shared sailing interests, experiences, love for the sea. Happy Sailing. :-)

Sailing Experience:

Been sailing since I was young & starting with dinghies. Took sailing more seriously with yachts in my early 30's & have sailed yachts for thirty years with at least +/- 40,000nm logged. Now an owner of a 10m / 33ft specialist lift keel monohull yacht. In the past, my sailing has been mainly UK South Coast / English Channel based. I have done lots of racing too (Cowes Week etc) both inshore & offshore. The last 10 years my focus has been on longer distance cruising & exploring.

If you like what you have read and are interested in getting to know me, please get in touch. I don't bite.
