Hello from UK

I have been sailing since 1967.
Sailing most things, looking for a challenge.
Raced up to and including world championships.
Now looking for delivery work or long term cruising.

Seasons of Racing Hunter Formula One's
A season Racing 707 also International 6 Meters
7 World Championships in International Tempests
National Championships in several different classes.
Some of the yachts I have sailed this year
Moody 40, Frères 45, Bavaria 34, Nicholson 36.
A number of Channel crossings, as watch leader and skipper.

So far this year clocked up over 2700 sea miles and 120 hours in night watches.
I have knowledge of diesel engines and I am a time served Electrical and Mechanical Engineer

A little about myself, my interests and my plans
I think I have done the racing thing and now looking to do long term cruising or delivery work as I have retired and looking for some sea time, before buying my own. I am up for a laugh and get on well with most people, maybe nice to take this time to learn another language.

Re: Hello from UK

Wow, with that experience why are you asking what kind of boat and piece of equipment we would take on a around the world cruise?
