Nick Barclay

"Sailor in Port" - Freelancing

Currently resides in: Western Cape, South Africa

Born in Cape Town South Africa

Having studied and worked in the marketing sector, I have an affinity and, dare I say, a flare for the creative.

My passion lies in sailing, however, and this is where I find my greatest joy.

I completed a team circumnavigation of the globe, by yacht, in 2012.

Ideally I want to be in a position where I work in a sailing or marine related industry, if not actually being on the boat, then closely aligned through a Marketing or similar position.

My medium to long term objectives are to work outdoors and continuously grow my skills and qualifications in this area. For example I completed my Yachtmaster Offshore Ticket in Oct 2012.
