    Description

    Sailboats enthusiast. Ocean, Wind & Sails as a way of life.
    Been aboard my sailboat since I bought and refurbish her 6 years ago, always at the anchor. I move using the wind, rowing my dinghy, even having a working engine. Don't like burning fuel.
    Mostly vegetarian. No proseced food. Love cooking healthy.
    I'm a minimalist, no fridge, no TV, bucket shower on deck, etc. My philosophy, less is more.
    I'm a DIYer, solo sailor, social, adict to music, nature, peace, culture.
    I have been working on sailboats for 12 years, charters, deliveries and maintenance mostly.
    Before sailboats I lived on camper vans in Europe/Central America.
