East coast, rivers, creeks and saltings...Afloat again at last!

I would like to pass on skills acquired from a life time sailing. I work in the leisure marine sector, love and want to share this wonderful recreational hobby.Have worked as skipper for major Med flotilla organisations,commercial deliveries...own boats etc.
New inflatable rib dinghy and Suzuki outboard, to get to the pub before it closes or beach campfire meal and sing/shout along with or without guitar, perfect!
Marina based in Suffolk, UK. Happy confident character and enjoy outdoor life with others. As well as sailing, I draw, paint encourage others too! Keen guitarist and guitar always on board. Cookery and wine is also a hobby, nobody goes hungry on my boat! Discussions on politics , world affairs debate encouraged! Great Gruyere toasties that go well with southern Rhone reds..!! )
Sailing the North Sea, Channel, Suffolk rivers sailing with the seals, chasing the sun. Sharing.....with others.
Happy for day sailing, weekends or further afield as tide and winds allow, voyages/deliveries also
Afloat now! Clean boat and personal hygiene regime will be in place for our well being.
Huge laughs and happiness always, even in the wind and rain when skipper is hiding below practising his Clapton licks..
Many promises to help get boat ready for summer, nobody.....
20 May first day out sailing 12knt breeze, alone...... ) 'Appy !
