Come Play In The Bay (Mexico)

Fancy trying the liveaboard life in Mexico? I'm a beginner sailoress who is currently in the Sea of Cortez, slowly but surely, learning the ropes. I'll be here for the next few months and am looking for people interested in coming down for 'boat stays'. I have a kayak, sailing dinghy, the main pleasure vessel, and the nearby beaches and bays are perfect for snorkeling. Check out my blog at Against All Cods to get a feel for the gig. The grand plan, but not this year, is to sail across the Specific and out the other side to South East Asia. But first things first. Like learning how to sail.

How about learning that it's the Pacific Ocean, not the Specific Ocean. It might help you get where you're going...


Of course, the Pacific could be the specific ocean that you're refering to I suppose....

Good luck with your plans. You will enjoy sailing.

Hey there, I am looking for someone willing to bring me on to teach me the ropes. I would need room and board, but I learn quickly and am pretty versatile. Well let me know what you think.

I think, therefore I am.
Sorry, I'm not a charity, but good luck finding such a good deal with room and board.

Forkbiters (including spoons) bite their cutlery each time they put food in their mouth. It's a horrible sound. Spoon clankers bash their cereal or soup bowls. Dig dig dig. Clank clank clank. Fine tablemanners are a must on this boat.

I think I understand ... tablemanners are a must for mariners in Mexico.

They are a must wherever I may be in the world, regardless of pursuit.
