Looking For Some Excitement

Hi all

Brand new to forum and sailing community. I am looking to gain some sailing experience. I relocated for work and am currently living in Milwaukee WI USA. I am already sick of my career as an engineer and looking for some excitement in my life.

What I lack in sailing knowledge I make up in size, strength, intelligence, and work ethic. I am 26 and 6'4" 215 lbs and have a degree in mechanical engineering.

I am great with my hands and an incredibly fast learner. I have an insatiable desire to see the world and my current corporate life is not providing this.

I am always interested in new opportunities. Let me know if anyone would like to take me on.

Regards

Bryan

Re: Looking For Some Excitment

I was referring to excitement in my life. Maybe excitement was the wrong word. Adventure is probably a better word to use. Even a boring trip surely with beat the mundane monotony of the "office".
