About Me:

Hi - I'm refitting the boat for West Iberia this summer - especially Islas Ciew, Galicia and maybe down to Rio Guadiana. Expect to reach N Spain mid late June then spend some time exploring the Rias, so there's opportunities for some short passages down that coast and also a longer offshore, maybe down to Portugal (where I have riverside land) or back to UK.
I enjoy paddling - have a small kayak onboard and may get another - or open to other paddlers joining with their own boat.
I like to anchor out - rarely spend time in marinas but not averse to clunking up against a harbour wall or snuggling a fishing boat.

Sailing Experience:

Transatlantic: Canaries-Martinique; Caribbean;
Sea of Cortez; Central America, Alaska, Azores, east Med, Brittany, Solent, W Scotland
X Pacific; South Pacific - Hawaii-French Pol, NZ-Fiji
