I'm 66 years old, live in Mississippi
, and will be staying in Vero Beach, FL this coming February, visiting a friend who lives there. My friend and I would really like to go out sailing on the ocean one day with someone who'd be willing to take us on his boat.
Like I say, I'm 66. My friend is about 70. Both of us each have 20-30 years sailing experience : his on a Westerly something or other, about thirty feet long; mine, on a Drascome lugger (a yawl-rigged open boat). He sailed his out of Vero for years before he sold it. My experience is all from books
and on inland lakes (except for a three-day singlehanded vacation
Sound way back when (before casinos). You'd have to contact him for specifics, but the point is we both are fairly well experienced crew. I know I don't get seasick--not even in a typhoon off Japan
on the MST ship taking me to Viet Nam! Don was a Navy
swimmer and I've never heard him mention it; don't think he gets sick, either.)
That's a lot of lead up to saying neither he nor I have a desire to be the captain
anymore--but we're knowledgeable and able to take orders; and that what we like would be to hear from someone who'd be interested in taking us out on his sailboat, from somewhere between Cape Kennedy and Fort Pierce, maybe, in February. If you can help us, please do.
