My name is Mauro
, I'm 28 years old and coming from Switzerland
. Last week my journey around the world
I took the train from Bern and now I'm in Alicante
. My dream is to cross the Atlantic
without any emissions, to learn more about seamanship and to live with nature. After graduating, I worked as an accountant to save money
for my dream. Now the time has come, I quit my job, my flat to go on the biggest adventure of my life.
I am eager to learn more about seamanship, sailing, the ocean, other cultures and so on. As I have nearly no experience in sailing, I would like to gain
in de Med, around Canaries
or on the way to Cab Verde to test my seaworthiness and to learn
more about sailing
. I'm willing to give a hand where I can (cooking, cleaning
, watches/steering/navigation). I speak German
(native language, English, Spanish & French
I am an adventurous, sporty, open-minded, uncomplicated, tidy & clean guy who loves the sea (surfing, diving
PADI open water
etc.). Moreover, I love to be in nature such as hiking, camping, biking... Last but not least, I also really enjoy just to read a good book.
Actually, I am now on my way along the coast to Huelva/Cadiz. There I'm gonna take the ferry
to the Canaries
, if I don't find a boat
before. But in fact I'm open to every plan changes...
I spent allready some time on boats (once around 50 hours) and I'm pretty sure I will not
gonna get seasick
. But you never know, and that's why I have some medicaments with me and why I would like to test it before I go for the passage
Furthermore, for sure I'm willing to contribute
for the journey.
I hope to get a chance, at least for some daily trips to gain some experience.
