|7th January 2020||Fiona Christie||fionachristie99#hotmail.com||+353(0)863030678||Sailing with Galway Bay Sailing Club about 10 years. I have done the land based yachtmasters. I do the bow on a 1720 mainly but have cruiser experience also. I sailed to France & home with the Galway based Cruiser in Company in July 2019 (1066nm) with Seamus Gilroy & his wife Maeve on Split Point - Cruising Boat of the Year RCYC 2019. I'm new enough to sailing but I'm very enthusiastic, reliable & am great fun! I work as a guidance counsellor in a secondary school in Ennis so will be on school holidays at the end of May so I have no restrictions time wise. I don't have any ties family wise either. I'm fit & healthy, easygoing & a good cook. I'd love to do this race but there isn't anyone from the GBSC doing it. Seamus Gilroy can be my referee if required.|
