  • Description


    I am a 56 year old woman with a 43 foot steel sailing boat in the south of Spain. I am not able to sail the boat on my own.
    I am looking for someone with sailing skills , preferably skipper skills who would like to learn me how to sail the boat on my own. It would be great if this person can help with some maintenance tasks. If you have sailing in your blood and you are a handy person than maybe you want to stay with me for some time? In return I can learn you another language. I speak dutch, french, english, spanish and some german. If you are interested in trying out a healthy lifestyle then you can also learn with me how to live on a healthy diet, participate in walking, yoga, stretching, biking, swimming.

    The life style on board is very easy going. I love and respect the nature . I am always looking to meet new persons and I am eager to learn new things in life. Smokers are not welcme. I do not feel comfortable with persons who drink alcohol on a daily basis. Food is very important in my life. I live by the moto ‘ you are what you eat’. I do not eat pork. I try to avoid sugar, I do not drink alcohol, i avoid industrial prepared foods.

    Possibilities to learn dutch, english, french, german and spanish. I can teach you also about a healthy lifestyle. I can teach you yoga. When we move with the boat you will visit different places and discover new areas. When in a marina we are in a multicultural environment not only meeting local people but a mix of all kind of nationalities. I am also handy with computers and digital technology.
