07-01-2018 Posizione: Foredeck, Mast, Pit, Sewer, Grinder, Trimmer, Main Esperienza: Intermediate Commenti: Ahoy,
I\'m a student studying Law and German at Trinity College Dublin who really wants to get involved in yacht racing. However I have found it quite difficult to get my foot in the door. I’m a qualified dinghy instructor and have raced my Laser Radial internationally but ever since last August, when I got the opportunity to sail on a Varianta 44 in the Boddenetappen in north Germany, I’ve realised just how amazing big boat racing is and so am currently in the middle of my RYA Day Skipper training. Here is a list of any relevant yachting experience.
-2014: crewed on a Beneteau 36.7 (called Holy Grounder) to/around the Scilly Isles from Cork Harbour
-2014: completed my Competent Crew on a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 (Yola)
-Winters 2015/16: crewed on a Beneteau 27.7 (Jigsaw) in Dublin in the Dun Laoghaire Sunday morning Forstbite sailing- called the \"Turkey Shoot\" & \"Spring Chicken\"!
-2017: crewed in the Boddenetappen Regatta on a Varianta44
-2017: completed my first weekend of my Day Skipper on a Beneteau 36.7 (Holy Grounder)
-2018: currently looking forward to my first transatlantic crossing aboard the Volvo 70 Green Dragon.
I would genuinely appreciate the opportunity to get some more time on the water. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this.
24-01-2018 Posizione: Tutte Esperienza: Advanced Commenti: Hello everyone! I\'ve grown upon the east coast of Italy in Pesaro and started to sail at the age of 6. As a family, we have vacationed chartering sailboats in Sardinia, Sicily, and the Italian coastline as well as in the Caribbean. Growing up on the sea instilled in me a passion for sailing since the age of 7 on Optimists, Open Bics and monohulls. As I got older, I gained more experience on 420’s, Laser Standards, and on the Farr 30, Farr 40 and Tp 52. Since 2014, I have spent 2-4 weeks every summer at Centro Velico Caprera in Sardinia, sailing the Laser Bahia, Topaz Argo, Laser Vago,Rs 500, Waszp, J 80 and Benetteau First 25.7. Last year, I was selected as one of the youngest to undergo training to become an instructor at the sailing school, which I successfully completed. It was during my time during these summers that I developed a very strong interest in participating as a crew member on a boat after watching boat-side several Maxi Rolex Cup Races. The excitement, teamwork, and hard work involved drive me to humbly and eagerly learn while contributing as a team member in any capacity.
Because of my love for the water, I have been swimming competitively since I was 6 years old with a local swim team. In addition, in 2016, I obtained the International Life Saving (ILS) certificate as a lifeguard in the pool and open water with jet ski and the Basic Life Support (BLS) certificate. I am currently enjoying learning to kite-surf and have just obtained my nautical license.
If given this opportunity, I am open to contributing any way I can but mostly, gain experience learning in this fascinating environment which has always been a dream for me. If you should need any additional information or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your consideration,
Marco B. Rossini

My name is Roy and I\'m 18. I\'ve been sailing from a very young age on a 43 foot sailing yacht that my family owns, I\'ve done many international sailing trips and I estimate my sea time is about 4 months to this this point. When I was younger I also attended summer camps that included small sail boats, wind surfing and kayaks. I am an active person and I keep myself fit and healthy. My English is pretty good and I can communicate easily with other people. I like meeting new people and I am a positive person who likes to learn from others.
Recently I completed a skipper course and I am now licensed for a yacht between 7-21 meters in a coastal trip, this gave me more knowledge about the sea and what it takes to control a yacht. The opportunity to attend this crossing would let me gain more experience as a novice skipper.
