About Me

I'm a musician, sailor, rock climber who lives a traveling lifestyle aboard my 34ft sailing catamaran, Curlew.

Please see my old profile for more info:

And my lovely references from the amazing bunch I've met through cs :D

I have a bigger boat since then but that profile is still basically me!

Also, I no longer live in Aberdyfi, I sail around a lot but the site wont let me change my address, eek!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Over the 6 years I've been an active CS member I've used and loved CS and it's community for hosting, surfing and just for finding like minded folk to meet up with.

Unfortunately, it seems to be changing a lot :( this is pretty much due to now being run as a business with the sole purpose of making money. The old CS was run for the love of it by volunteers who were also members. It is still a good site though (till we all move to which is a non profit community!)

At the moment I'm looking for people to come sail with me to far off lands, musicians and climbers are extra welcome but you don't have to be either, or even an experienced sailor (I can teach you well enough!)


I love travel, landscape and people. Sea, mountains and music. Being active, creative, sociable, Fun!
