Dear All, we are two Danish guys looking for a sailboat that crosses the Atlantic with departure from the 20th of May this year. We are both taking a semester as exchange students at the University of Arkansas, as a part of our mechanical engineering degree and are very flexible with the place of departure and arrival (as long as the arrival is in Europe).
About the two of us:

I, Asbjørn, am 23 years old and tried sailing for the first-time last summer and immediately fell in love with the seas. Ever since then I have had a dream of crossing the Atlantic. I might not be the most well known around a ship, but I am a fast learner and dedicated to learning it all as quickly as possible. I am a very outgoing and social person, who loves adventures and meeting new people. As a bonus; I do love to cook and consider myself as a pretty decent chef and make a hell of a mojito, so I got that going for me which is nice.

I, Daniel, am 24 years old and sailing has always been a part of my life. I started sailing optimist when I was a kid and I have been yacht racing afterwards in different classes. Normally I live and study in Aarhus, Denmark where I still do some racing. It has always been a dream of mine to cross the Atlantic, and one day do it by myself. I think it will be a good experience, crossing the Atlantic together with some trained sailors, to help me get closer to my dream and expanding my knowledge. I am a person who likes to be around people and love making new friendships. Before studying mechanical engineering, I took a carpenter education, so if you need someone to help fixing something - I would be more than glad to help!

If you (or somebody you know) are planning on crossing the Atlantic and needs two hard working Vikings onboard, please feel free to contact us!
