Hello there!

I'm a 53 old male, and a newly certified RYA certified Day Skipper (Sail). I also have RYA Day Skipper (Power), Marine Radio (SRC) and Radar certifications. My practicals for both sail and power were conducted in the Solent. I buzz around the area in a Sealine S34 when I get the chance, and am always extremely courteous and considerate to any and all yachts I meet along the way!

I wanted to learn to sail, both for the experience and because it's a "no-brainer" when it comes to both chartering and longer passage-making. Having got the bug I would love to be able to build my sailing miles and experience by crewing for any experienced skipper that may be short-handed.

I live in Farnham, Surrey about 45 mins from the South Coast by car so am available at reasonably short notice on weekends. Holiday allowance (and wife) permitting I could also be available for longer cruises.
