22/12/2017 Marc Sweeney marc.sweeney#outlook.com 0838213360 I’m from Derry originally and I have completed both RYA Competent Crew (Trafalgar Sailing, Gibraltar 2013) and RYA Day Skipper (Carbery Sailing, Ahakista 2016). I am a member of Sailing in Dublin Club, where I was elected by existing Captains as a “Vice Captain”. I have taken part (in all positions) in ISORAs (DL – Holyhead 2016), Turkey Shoots (2016), Spring Chickens (2016 & 2017), and helmed a Sigma 33 in the Dun Laoghaire Regatta (2017). My work is quiet flexible so can make myself available as necessary (within reason).

Have been sailing since the age of ten on a range of dinghies, and also as part of a crew on a First 347 for 2 years when I was 15 & 16. Very enthusiastic to get back in to cruising, with my job I can usually be available at short notice.

Competed in multiple races in the Baltic and North Sea as well as the Rolex Middle Sea Race. Comfortable in all positions, most regular position is Bowman. I‘m motivated, a teamplayer, neat, fit and seasickness has never been an issue. Boatyard and maintenance experience on yachts up to 60ft.
