Dinghy Sailor looking to get offshore

Hi

I知 Keith, a recent high school graduate (17 years old) and dinghy sailing instructor. I have elected to take a gap year between high school and university to travel and sail. I am looking for a crew position with a seasoned captain; someone that can show me the ropes to offshore sailing with a solid boat. I知 very comfortable trimming sails, steering, and everything else to do on small boats but I don稚 have any offshore experience. I知 eager to learn and I take directions well.

I did very well in high school. I graduated on the honor roll with distinction as well as receiving many other awards. I was heavily involved in the music program as well as other sports and clubs. I have had many paid and volunteer positions over the last few years. I could have gone straight to university, but I壇 rather travel and find out what it is I really want with my life first.

I am available on short notice (passport in hand). I would like to get on a boat somewhere in North America. Once I am aboard the boat, the more places we go the better.

I am comfortable with the sleep schedule required for watch duty. I知 an early riser by nature. I also enjoy cooking (I知 not amazing, but I enjoy it). I知 healthy, athletic, fit, good eyesight, and I don稚 have any allergies except for cats.

Basically, I知 a well-rounded High school graduate who really wants to go sailing. I値l share the work load, do some cooking, and follow orders.

If you would like to know more about me or are interested in me as a crew feel free to PM me. I have a resume and references available.

Re: Dinghy Sailor looking to get offshore

Did you find 'your' boat yet?
In my opinion the best way to get your feet on the boat is to head to the Caribbean, islands like St Martin, Martinique, St Lucia, Grenada or Trinidad.Call me if you want more advice, I live in Kelowna and go there every year.

No, unfortunately I haven't been able to make a complete commitment to any boat yet. I've gotten quite a few offers but none of them have been a good fit. That being said, there are two that I am currently looking at very seriously.

I would love to give you a call. The more information and people I get to know the better. How does tomorrow (September 18th) at around 7 sound?

Keith
