My friends call me Branco. I was born in Vila Franca do Campo, São Miguel Island, Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Back in 1999, a teacher at school brought me to try sailing dinghies at the local maritime club and since then, I haven't stopped. In 2007, I started traveling around the world, interacting with various cultures, sailing and learning languages. You can check my CV below.
All my nautical and personal knowledge comes forward in the SailZen project. I wanted it to start in the most fulfilling place on Earth: the Azores Islands. "The answer, my friend... is blowing in the wind" … that is why we are called SailZen: a mix of full adrenaline with pure relax.
I hope you enjoy, you sail and you feel zen!
