- About Me:
I am looking for sailing experience / adventures on ocean waters as well as friendship and more, (with the right woman). I would be happy to crew on yacht deliveries, or help skipper, in the Caribbean, or Mediterranean, or elsewhere. I can cook, clean, dock, am reasonably mechanically minded, and am ready to do whatever needs to be done.
I am fit and exercise regularly. After taking a stress test 4 years ago was told I was as fit as a forty year old so hope to sail for many years yet. Navigation and Italian courses and reading, esp politics and history help keep the brain going.
Looking forward to meeting and sailing with some enthusiastic and experienced skippers who will share their knowledge. and learning as much as I can wherever I can. Very happy to crew for an experienced female skipper.
- Sailing Experience:
I managed to get out on local waters 30 or 40 days over each of the past three years and to take courses in Antigua, BVIs and Gibraltar. I crewed on a trip from Portsmouth to the Canaries (2017) and on a flotilla off Croatia (2018). Also did a 10 day cruise off Vancouver Island in August 2019. Spent 6 days in the BVIs, February 2020, just before the COVID19 shutdown. I spent two summers crewing on a C&C 115 for local club races and in 2019 shared skipper and crew duties racing a 22ft Tanzer.
