Sailing CV


Started sailing in very young years in a dinghy with my father and brother. Then it became a summer adventure with friends and as a crew member on various racing projects. In 2000 it became an idea and a design project with a 42-footer which turned into a charter business. Nowadays I consider sailing being built into my DNA. I am constantly looking for new sailing opportunities – whether it is sailing for change to make a climate statement, cruising for fun, helping out as crew or signing up for the role as a skipper.

Formal Merits:

Yacht Master, Coastal

World Sailing Offshore Safety Certificate
VHF Radio Operator

Royal Swedish Navy, Sergeant

Sailing resume for assignments:
Looking for sailing assignments on boats in any size from 40 foot and up – single or multihull. Been sailing all my life. From dinghies to large cruisers. Racing and cruising. Have collected some coastal 25.000 nm and ocean 4500 nm. Raised to navigate with charts and a compass but appreciate any plotter. Managed my own sailing charter business. Sailed 6.000 nm around Scandinavia as skipper and founder of a climate statement project with young crew members. Can repair things, handle wild sails and have been around in lots of harsh weather, including snow storms. Can cook a great and healthy meal in any wind speed or direction. Like to serve others. Non smoker.
