- About Me:
I am new to sailing but love it. Looking for a partner for cruising.
I am a good cook and a fast learner. I can fish. I can clean fish and cook them but someone else has to kill them.
I love to snorkel and have my PADI card. I have a surfboard and a boogie board. I love to do all of those and have done them since I was a wee girl. I also love to just go for a row in a punt. I have been scuba diving in Bermuda, SoCal, and in Thailand. I can speak Spanish too. I like to do things locally. I am not a fan of resorts or fancy places. I want to be with the people, the regular, lovely people, the indigenous people.
My kids are grown and doing well so now is my time to do what I have been wanting to which is go sailing. My hope is to be gone for years. I am interested in Austral-Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Bermuda (of course) Africa and the Med. Even as far north as the UK. It will be about 18 to 20 months before I clang the retirement bell.
I am the executive director of a nonprofit that does river restoration work. So I am very environmentally minded and have done a lot of advocacy. I have a background in government and am an urban planner by training. I am intellectually curious. I want to travel with people who are intellectually curious. I have a limited number of international contacts in the oceanography and climate science area.
I am easy going and don't get riled easily. I am calm and thoughtful in disasters.
I am a very light drinker and am not interested in partying a lot. Rather I am interested in exploring the most out of the way places and meeting people whose cultures and way of life are different than mine. I would rather have a couple of good friends than a boatload of fair-weather friends.
Not a Trump supporter.
And I can sing and enjoy singing with others.
Oh yeah, the profile picture was taken this year.
I will be fully vaxed by the end of Feb. Woohoo!
- Sailing Experience:
I have been around boats all my life. I am from Bermuda. I have sailed in Panama and am sailing in San Diego.
I just finished the Baja Bash. Nearly 1,000 miles taking a sail boat north against 20 to 35 knots and the Humbolt current. It was a slog. But loads of fun. I learned I am a good winch wench, a good boat cook, a good safety officer 1st class but reefing the main in the black of night with 35 knots on the nose and a ripping main sail, I am pretty rubbish.
- Sailing Qualifications:
General sailor. Just time on boats, I can do some navigation, trimming sails, cooking. I am by no means and expert.
