Hi I'm Maans van Niekerk (39)from South Africa. I sailed basically all the South African offshore events. I recently completed the Cape2Rio race after completing the Cape - St.Helena race the year before. Now I keen to use platforms like these to afford me the opportunity to sail abroad. I have an SAS Coastal ticket and will be willing to make a financial contribution as being part of the crew.I'm flexible around the boat and will be willing to slot in anywhere. Looking forward to a favourable response and an awesome adventure.
