Dear Sir,

I am interested in being your captain.

My experience is immense. I was sailing before I was born (my mother was pregnant with me in a regatta From the year 2000 I owned a series of 4 yachts of my own, Backpackers would come aboard and I would teach them how to sail and how to live aboard a yacht, I have visited 43 countries.

If you are interested in me then we need to skype soon

let me know when is convenient for you





Dear Alex,

Thanks for the reply.

I can tell you much more about myself by sending you my autobiography which is published. I do not want to give a link here as it will become publicly accessible, so please contact my email address so I can send it.

Some questions for you, if you please:

Do you have your boat yet?

What is she?

Have you researched the route, yourself?

Here is one interesting link:


If you have not purchased yet perhaps another sailing life-plan could evolve?

I am sitting on a yacht which needs to sail from Malaysia to Alaska over the next two years. Perhaps you would like to join me and learn along the way?

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website. Thank you, Andrew
