About Me:

I am a genuine, caring and sensitive retired guy. I live on the south west corner of the Cotswolds. I am looking for a sailing companion; maybe even a shareholder in my Moody Eclipse 38 Deck Saloon, Kandoo. Currently berthed in Sicily, cruising the Mediterranean but likely to move a little further east in 2020/21 but happy to consider suggestions. Sailing experience not absolutely essential but obviously an advantage.

I have no children at home now.

About myself; I am thoughtful, well organised and presented and a wicked sense of humour which allows me to exercise my beaming smile. I am equally happy in jeans and T-shirt or my Dinner Jacket enjoying formal dinners as well as grabbing the occasional quick supper at the local hostelry (firm favourite when the ale is good and the wine is red, full bodied and plentiful).

I enjoy listening to music (great collection of vinyl through the 60's/70's and into anything modern and memorable), walks in the countryside/countryside inns, good red wines, cosy nights in, fun nights out and not forgetting why I'm here, sailing. My sailing yacht, Kandoo, is my pride and joy. I want someone to enjoy it with.

I live by the maxim.... "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today; if you like it today, you can do it again tomorrow" .................. so, are you to be my adventure partner? Do you have the means and inclination to join me in seeking fun and sailing in the sun? It will be so much fun and a great adventure.

Come on, you know it's what you've always wanted to do ...................
