Crew available late November or December 2017

I am traveling until November 20, 2017 and then looking for a boat on which to crew. I know I would make a great addition to the boat. If you are looking for crew a little later in the year, please keep me in mind. Thanks!

A little about me:

I have retired early to travel. I am a "blue water" sailor (Atlantic, Caribbean, Mediterranean, etc.). Most recently I have been to the Bahamas, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Turkey, Greece, Croatia, Florida, and now New Orleans. I live in a nice old home about 2 kilometers from the French Quarter (10 minute bike ride if you go slow). Well educated and very polite. I run 2 miles every morning to City Park and back home (ride my bike the rest of the time). Bachelors and Masters Degrees from a major university (Big 10 conference). Two daughters both finishing their PhD’s this year. Fun-loving guy and a bit of a romantic. These days you will generally find me in shorts, t-shirt, and sandals…I'm pretty casual. Love a good conversation and a glass of wine.

Some specifics:
1. I am single, a United States citizen, 61 years old, Marine Corp Officer Reserve (inactive duty), and in excellent health (currently run 2 miles each day).
2. Excellent swimmer with certified CPR and first aid training.
3. Experience working on Yanmar diesels (not a mechanic), boat electrical, and other boat maintenance stuff.
4. Good photography and videography skills (over 200,000 views of my photos on Google).
5. Excellent trip planner and navigator (lots of shallow water experience).
6. Over 2,000 NM by sailboat and 400 additional by power boat.
7. I love water sailing">blue water sailing having sailed the Atlantic and Caribbean and know my knots. My bother has a Lagoon 500 which he sails around the Caribbean and on which I have crewed. Just returned from a voyage which started in Tampa, FL, through the Florida Keys, around the Bahamas, and back to Tampa. Heaviest seas I have experienced are 3 to 5 meters; most of the time in .5 to 1.5 meter seas.
8. Master Gardener.
9. Expert fisherman. Also, I do the fish cleaning and cooking… just a good cook overall.
10. Superior general maintenance and construction skills.
11. Experienced senior leadership in food and heavy manufacturing.
12. My passport is current. Also, I have Global Entry and an international driver's license.
13. Positive attitude, easy going, and a self-starter.
14. I can cover my travel, food, and miscellaneous expenses.
15. YouTube channel: “Travel Lane”

Re: Crew available late November or December 2017

Super Low Expenses!! Come sail with us! We are looking for people to help share with the expenses for a late model 40 - 45' catamaran off Kos, Greece the third week of October (just over a month away). Plane flights currently kind of low ($550 rt from Chicago to Athens). The week charter is already paid for, we just need help with start up charges and insurance/damage waiver charges. Write back or call (coded - Two 6 too, three 6 six, ate 6 ate eight) if you have a chance of taking advantage of this opportunity! Linda

We will be sailing in Greece October 2017 through November 2017 with cabins available for week long sails. Come join us before your MX sail.

Then, from January 2018 through May 2018 we will be chartering a large catamaran eight separate weeks out of Phuket, Thailand.

Write back if you want to pursue either opportunity.

Warmly,

Linda
