Default experienced help available here

Hi all,

For the last 8 years, I have been working on boats, and have owned 3. First a 24-footer then the 30-footer "Lutine", and most recently I have a trimaran of 39-foot. With these boats I've been across the Atlantic several times and cruised South America, the Caribbean and islands off the coast of Africa. The South coast of England is one of my favorite areas, but I love the East and West coasts of Sweden too - but only in summertime!

Sailing is great, and it is at it's best when one can share the experience, although I have sailed across the Atlantic single-handed too, and loved it!

The last 4 years I have worked with my partner from Austria. She is a sailing instructor and a great person to have on board any boat. Unfortunately she is busy at the moment and cannot undertake any voyaging. We manage yacht deliveries, charter yachts and are a great team. I skippered, with her as mate, a 60 foot Volvo Ocean Racing yacht in South Africa, Brazil, Ireland, England, Sweden, Norway and Germany during 2009.

I'm willing to do maintenance work on yachts too... So if you need good experienced help or advice in a refit or voyage preparation I am available.
(I have good skills with fiberglass/epoxy, painting, varnishing but also have a very keen understanding of electrical systems and auxiliary engines. I have worked in England, Martinique and Slovenia as a rigger)

I am a 27 year old from Sweden. I have a US B1/B2 visa.

Yachtmaster offshore certificate, and celestial navigation

STCW '95 Firefighting, Sea Survival, First Aid.

VHF radio license, diesel engine maintenance and a UK driving license

upward 80.000 miles logged, and 8 transats.

I require: travel to/from yacht, room and board for the duration. Only available until April 2014.
Ideal region: North America, I have to go to Florida in April to bring my yacht over to Europe from there in May.
