- About Me:
Relaxed and easy going.
I have three degrees, which seems to have served me well in life.
Up until now my passion has been motorbikes but sailing has always been lurking in the background: between my Dad’s infectious enthusiasm and a few friends having yachts. I have some ideas for the future but nothing set in stone since I would like that to be a joint decision.
Dayskipper practical, Yachtmaster Offshore Theory.
Currently researching and looking at boats with the help of a pal who knows a lot more about these things than I.
As well as motorbikes I enjoy cycling, skiing and the gym.
In my ideal world I would like to find a best friend, soul mate and someone to play with: to spend time sailing here, there and everywhere with. If it’s me on my own, First stop is likely to be the Mediterranean. But if I find a boat in the Caribbean and you are in the America’s, it could be there we start.
My inspiration in life has mostly been Richard P. Feynman and the baby zebra on Serengeti. The zebra isn’t quotable but Feynman is.
“Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don't think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn't stop you from doing anything at all.“
This has never let me down.

Hi I have been sailing for a couple of years now and have clocked up about 900Nm. Done a few courses (day skipper). I would like to find a boat that I could crew on to build up my experience and knowledge. Trips could be day trips of longer. Many thanks Derek
