Hi Can Hou Help ? We Need Sailing Experience !

We are a British couple, aged 43 and 48, new to this and would like to say hello and ask if anyone in the Med or Uk would be able to help us out with some sailing experience. We have experience on motor yachts but would like to gain experience on a sail yacht. Ideally we would like to come in March. We can cover all our expenses and are very handy. We are easy going, happy and friendly and would be able to help with any projects you may have that need extra hands. We hope you can help and are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Re: Hi can you help, we need sailing experience

My suggestion would be to take some sailing courses from a reputable instructor that offers classes similar to the American Sailing Association or Canadian Yachting Association training available in North America.

Sail Training Courses - American Sailing Association - Summary of Standards

I'm sure this would be available in the UK or Med. Essentially, that is what you are asking for and the instructors do a proper job of it and you receive some certifications as well. You wouldn't have that from what you are asking for.

Good luck.

Wherever we want to go, we go. That's what a ship is you know - it's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs. But what a ship is...really is, is freedom. ~Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow
