Just Registered...looking for New Opportunities


My name is Francisco and I have been in S. Florida on and off (on business) for several months. I would like to offer my services as crew to local sailors who might need some help on daily sails and so forth.

I learned at OCSC (Berkeley, CA) and have experience sailing a 42' Morgan in the Sausaito, CA (SF Bay). My personal best... Solo tacking in 32 knot winds near the Golden Gate with the skipper making a cocktail in the cabin.

I've also done two tours in Naknek, AK as a commercial fisherman on a 32' wooden boat made in 1966 (one day we had 15 foot swells and another 25' at night). So my comfort level has pertty much been tested when it comes to being on boats; altough I do prefer calmer rides".

I thought about going to different ports and talking to boat owners (Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, etc..) but thought I might give this a try first.

I am usually available on Sundays, but can arrange a day during the week if I know in advance. My email:

Best Regards,
Francisco A.
