About Me:

Greatings Seafarers! I introduce myself: my name is Giulio and I am a 34 years old italian guy, looking forward to some new sailing experience.. From charters to milebuilding, passing through seasonal cruising, regattas and passages I am currently available for any kind of sailing challenge up until October which is the time when I'll start make my way to the Canaries and the Atlantic.. I am a easy going/ open minded companion, with a friendly and positive attitude but I am also a reliable and attentive sailor who is determined to learn more and improve. I like the sea, its inhabitants and environment and also sea related activities such as diving, snorkeling, fishing and canoeing/kayaking. I started sailing in 2019 which is also the time when I got myself the italian offshore sailing licence. I then had some experiences volunteering on recreational sailing vessels mainly as a deckhand/watch keeper and cook.. now after the Covid pandemic I can't wait to be back on deck for some new adventures at sea...
