Meet Xavier, the skipper
56 years old · From Barcelona, España
Verified professional skipper
Professional skipper experience in regattas. I have been sailing since I was 12 years old with all kinds of boats. Now I ride "dribble" boat trips and playful participation in regattas. I love forgetting about the engine and sailing while maximizing the performance of the sails. I like to teach and share experiences.
