Dear Shipmates

Introduction

My name’s Ben, 30yo originally from Argentina but been living a nomadic lifestyle for about 12 years now. Sailed since I was a kid, my dad always owned a yacht. We've done countless coastal miles. However, no blue water crossings yet.

A little about myself, my interests and my plans

I’m pursuing a sailing lifestyle, aiming to build up a solid logbook. I love to be in the water, enjoying different activities such as surfing, snorkeling & freediving, fishing & spearfishing, wind & kitesurfing.
Having traveled around the world, working in different areas allowed me to become quite handy and resourceful. For the last 3 years I've been living on Cocos Keeling Islands, a small atoll located in the heart of the Indian Ocean.
I work as a powerboat skipper here, taking people fishing and snorkeling around different locations.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

I would like to become a yachtmaster one day, so slowly gaining experience, miles and tickets to get there.
