I am looking for paid positions preferably with commercial opportunities, however unpaid/expenses only recreational cruising i enjoy also.

I have been sailing yachts recreationally and professionally for a long time, I'm currently active with 4,500 nM sailed just recently . That's predominantly professional deliveries and cruising coastal and ocean.

A good all-rounder, I like to get involved in the whole sailing experience. On deck, in the galley or the engine room. I am also experienced in the upkeep and maintenance of sailing yachts and motor cruisers also as an ex naval engineer.

Competent and good company


Dave joined us from Ramsgate to Lymington stopping at Brighton and Chichester en route. He is a competent seaman, and with his naval background come a fund of good stories which kept things going on deck. A good guy to have on board.
