  • Descripción


    Hi I am an English sailor and an English teacher by profession living in Southampton UK. I am married with 2 sons and a daughter .I love to play tennis, football and play the guitar. We live in in non-smoking house ( we don't have any pets or any particular dietary constraints) Southampton University is 3 minutes walk and then city centre is not far . My wife is also a English teacher so the volunteer will have access to two people who can help them improve their Language skills.

    My I recently raced my boat (a Sigma 36) in some offshore races including the Fasnet Race. The boat took a beating and we need to do some things to get it back into shape.

    What I am looking for is person or persons who is (are) fit and active and happy to work with their hands. No experience is necessary but should have good hand eye coordination and not be afraid to work with power tools. Also we are very happy to have couples.

    Aslo I am in the process of building a small building in my garden so far we have excavated the site and now need to lay the foundation and build a retiaining wall. So may need some hep with that. But sailing will be avaliable on the boat during the stay whaere helkp you are providing!!

    After that we will be builiding a small timber framed 2 story building. So lots of skills to learn!!
