Single again after 19 years of married life... and enjoying it to the full!
Just looking for a good friend and fun. Not quite ready for anything too serious or involved. Not interested in perverts or sex maniacs, so don’t even bother to make contact. It’s more some intellectual stimulation I’m after when I come back to civilization...
I have a rather strong personality and fiery Italian temper. I am dreadful when it comes to punctuality. I can't stay still. I love sailing, travelling, walking, cycling, scuba diving and skiing. But I also enjoy a good arty film, a concert or some theatre.
After having been a geologist, soil mechanics engineer working on drilling boats, accountant, tax consultant, property developer, and running a bush TV company, I have been involved in a traditional wooden sailing boat building project in Madagascar.
She's all finished now! A dream! That's how she's actually called: "NOFY BE", big dream in Malagasy.
If you are not put off by now, think you can keep up, sporty, adventurous, sensual and a bit of a gentleman, why not give it a try...? The hic, you need to like travelling as I do now spend most of my time on NOFY BE in the Canal of Mozambique, hopping from island to island, anchoring in secret bays, meeting local populations and their traditions, exploring undiscovered and hidden locations, whale and dolphin watching, and sometimes putting up with some slightly sh..., well lets say annoying, tourists.
I only come back to wet and windy Plymouth a few weeks a year...
P.S. I've now led this sailor life for a few years and still love it to bits, but I'd like to have more time to explore other horizons. So I'm looking for a third partner in this venture. Someone who loves the sea and the heat, very laid back but has a lot of energy, can manage a crew of people who do not always think or have the same habits as us, has good organizational skills (the logistics in Madagascar can be a bit of a nightmare…), can spare at least 4 months a year of his time, can speak French and possibly some other languages, and has money to invest that he can afford to loose… (there is a well known say that goes: “Pour devenir millionnaire à Madagascar il faut y arriver milliardaire”, and many have experienced that it is not untrue...). Malagasy are not violent as Africans can be, but the regimes are volatile and corruption ripe!
So if you, or somebody you know fits the bill, have a look at our website www.nofy-be.com and do contact me.
