Professional navigator, sea captain, yacht captain (FIA MPX, KVIMU).
My entire adult life (and a good part of my teenage years) I worked on sailing ships of various classes and tonnage, starting with “Kruzenshtern.” By chance, or by fate, some years ago I found myself in Canada, where I am living now, visiting from time to time far corners of the world, mostly for business.
I write short stories, and sometimes, even the poems. Anyway, remember one of the the fairy tales? – Once upon a time there was an old man and an old woman and they had three sons, two of them were smart and a third was a sailor …
So … don’t be hard on me!
