- Full Name
- Nicolas Peissel
- I have spent the last few years working in International Development and Humanitarian Aid with organizations such as the United Nations and Canadian Public Health Association in remote-devastated parts of Africa and Asia. I have been sailing for over 25 years and have worked as a Shipwright for close to a decade which allowed me the opportunity to sail all sorts of boats in different locations around the world. Most recently in 2009-2010 I bought a basic 28ft sloop fixed it up and sailed it over 20 000nm completing a circumnavigation of the North Atlantic (Montreal-New York-Bermuda-Azores-Portugal-Canaries-Cabo Verde-Caribbean-Montreal) of which I was featured in a full page article in SAIL magazine. I am an honest, motivated and hardworking individual with a great sense of humour who always completes what he has started. I like challenges and feel that I am resourceful and adapt very well to new situations and difficult circumstances and I am looking forward to exploring and highlighting the situation in one of the most remote and unvisited parts of my country and our world. I will be sharing my experiences on the blog on sailing forums and through articles with various sailing magazines.
