Introduction

I am a member of the 3 main UK sailing Meetups, and in addition to them have been organising/skipperin­g numerous charter sailing trips in UK, Med and Caribbean, with Sunsail and other charter companies for over 110 events in the past 7 years

Do you own a boat (and if so, what make and where is it located)?

I gather crew and organise the charter of yachts, mainly for racing. Have skippered these over the last 7 years, and crewed for 4 years prior to that, notching up 13,000nm. This is strictly non-profit, and costs split among the numbers on board. I also organise cruising charters and want to focus more on Croatia and Caribbean. Have raced/cruised the latter location on three fortnight holidays, and must do more. I am used to taking on all levels of experience and have trained up a large variety of folk, some who've gone on to buy their own yachts

What is your level of experience (Never Sailed, Novice, Intermediate, Expert)?

10+ years sailing, have race skippered these over the last 7 years, and race crewed for 4 years prior to that, notching up 13,000nm.
