- About Me:
Hi. I'm a pocket rocket who loves to sail and do stuff around the water. Keep me busy and all will go well!. People say I'm fun to be around. That's nice. I'm a real hard worker. Will always go the extra mile.
I'm not much good a fixing things on a boat (problem from having a Dad as an engineer - he fixed everything or pretended he could). I'd love to learn - just show me what to do.
Love the big outdoors; skiing, hiking, biking, horse-riding but above all love to be on or in the water (SUP, Kayak, canoe, row, swim, snorkel). Am a decent cook. Know my way round a wine list. Love a pub atmosphere and a couple of pints of Real Ale would be just perfect. Adore dogs (older kids are fine but not babies).
Moved to Exeter a couple of years ago. TBH am tired of Solent/Channel sailing and getting cold and wet. Am free to go where I want pretty much when I want so blue water cruising is definitely a possibility. Bring it on:) Am semi-retired. Mostly do my own thing. As soon as Covid19 allows I'll be off!!!!
- Sailing Experience:
Have been sailing loads in the last 10 years when I scaled down my corporate life although I did start sailing big boats a long time ago. Have done my RYA quals. Mostly race in Solent and South Coast UK. Have done 3 Fastnets, Clipper 11/12; Atlantic with TSYT, square rigger (Jubilee ST). Antigua RW. Race most weekends in Solent on anything from 35-45ft. Last summer skippered my friends 45 from Ballaerics to southern Brittany. Enjoy cruising as long as it's not just boozing. Can stand solo night watch. Love night sailing. But don't worry - I can enjoy cruising. Racing just means I know how to helm and manage sails.
Live, laugh, love and sail. Who's up for the challenge????
