I love sailing (sailboat) and have been sailing for many years. Now I seek new challenge, sailing over a large ocean like the Atlantic sea.

I have sailed in Danish waters since childhood. I have also sailed in the Mediterranean and from the Mediterranean (Fuengirola, Spain) to Denmark as crew onboard the old wooden sail yacht "Rosen". In recent years I have been training as 3. Yachtmaster in the Danish Naval Home Guard, where I am also is sailing in my spare time. At the moment we have a motorboat, but we are looking for a sailboat again. Because we don´t like the noise from the engine. I am an outgoing person with good humor and a ready smile. I love to travel and meeting new people. I can cook and is good at it, even if there is only boring leftovers in the refrigeratorays says my girlfriend. I works good in a team and are always ready to take hold and lend a hand.
