I am from Thunder Bay, ON, and have my 42' steel sloop
here in Subic Bay, Philippines where I am doing some routine maintenance
in the boatyard. If you want to work here in PI you will take a pay cut, no matter what kind of work you do.
If you want to get into sailing, one of your best bets is to spend some time in Puerto Galera, showing up at the Friday night BBQ at the PGYacht Club. Lots of sailors hang out there and there might be a chance of getting an outing. We are still ducking our heads with the typhoons in the area but the weather
is improving and should be good (I hope) come November and on.
