Hello From SF

Hi All,

I'm a 25 year old to-be grad student at Berkeley and have a couple months before I head into the library for a year. I am really hoping to get out on the water and learn/help sail a boat. Iím not picky on destination or length of trip (available November and December) but would like someone who doesnít have a problem teaching.

Iíve done a few day sails in the Puget Sound and San Francisco Bay but would like to get some extended overnight/week-long trips in with someone who could use an able hand. PM me if you have any availability, questions, or advice.

Thanks!

JP

Welcome JP. Maybe walk the docks at Berkeley Marina or Yacht club and ask around.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here.
Celestial's suggestion is a good one. See if they have a club where you can leave information for anyone who needs crew.
kind regards,

I sail with club Nautique. They have a google group where folks are looking for crew. Plus excellent instructors and locations in Alameda and Sausalito (which I prefer). Good luck and Go Bears! (I'm class if '92)
