- About Me:
After having professionally spend 15 years at sea, I do love it more and more, and decided to get a nice comfortable and efficient boat to explore the remote oceans and islands ; exploring, or just sail there for the pleasure with friends - Sailing and living at sea is magic :-)
I am a quite patient guy, loving nice boats and open seas, cold or warm. I prefer to sail than spending days in harbours, and I try to escape marinas as much as possible. Apart from this, very sociable and happy to talk and meet new people.
My conception of sailing is : Autonomy, pleasure of being at sea, Serious in sailing behaviour, interested by Explorations, True respect for nature and mankind.
At the moment, the yacht is sailing in Ireland, Scotland, Faeroe, Iceland and then Greenland. After this, plans are wide open.
Feel free to contact me and chat :)
- Sailing Experience:
Sailed the North sea, Channel and North Atlantic, whole W Med Sea, some Arabian Sea and Tierra de Fuego, North Atlantic until East Greenland.
Owned a swan 38 for the last 25 years.
Since 2015 owning, sailing and living onboard a 1989 lovely Baltic 55 sailboat. Already 20 000 Nm with her.
Very focused on security on board, safety is paramount ; I love to sail well, and I am happy to share everything I know about sailing with people who want to learn.
