Looking to learn

Hi,

My wife and I are looking to learn how to sail. I have some experience and am looking to build on that. With that, if someone needs a crew of one, or two, we would like volunteer. Until the summer of 2015, we are limited to weekends. During the summer, we will have more time. I'm prior military (Navy) and have both blue water and some ICW experience. Please let me know if you need anyone!

Re: Looking to learn

It might help to know where you are located.

Some race crews are looking for additional members. You start grinding winches or acting as "rail meat" and learn as you go.

Re: Looking to learn

I realized that I forgot to add my location just after I submitted my post... I'm located in N. Virginia.

Re: Looking to learn

Find all the local yacht clubs and get on their crew list. All racers need crew. Good way to learn too.
