Good Day All,
Long time lurker on the boards and have finally broke down and registered. I really started getting the sailing itch two years ago and after drueling over sailboat ads and watching all the sailing vlogs out I grabbed a Sparrow 17 this spring and since then I have sailed my little sailboat all over the Columbia
river from the warm waters of Lake Wallula to the currents of upper Lake Roosevelt (both are technically the Columbia
River). I figure I have approximately 50 hrs of sailing experience in my boat
in all kinds of weather
(I have been called an idiot trying to sail reefed up in pretty healthy winds).
This spring I am looking to do one of the 5-14 day sailing
learn and cruises in NW Washington
/ Vancouver and while the companies offering these excursions are charging
a very fair rate if anyone is looking for an additional hand who has cut his teeth a bit I would love to come out for a bit. As my handle suggests I work in law enforcement so rest assured im not quite
bat **** crazy.
If anyone has recommendations for any schools and or individuals who might help me in this pursuit I'd love to hear them and just to reiterate I'm not really seeking certifications as much as the knowledge and experience.
