Looking for a sailing buddy near Philadelphia

Hello! I've been learning to sail over the last few months since falling in love with the lifestyle. I went on a 5 day charter in the Caribbean in the spring, took a week long ASA sailing course and obtained my certifications 101-104 on a J26, Catalina 36' and 50' I've sailed an Optimist a few times and a J22 once. My dream is to eventually own a little charter operation and leave the land alltogether! So as a part of my quest for knowledge I am going to fly to Philly this week for a 6 week internship on a Sailing Tour Boat that mostly does short 1.5 hour cruises with a few 4 day and 7 day trips as well. I'll be living aboard and learning ALOT I'm sure....anyway the reason for my post is that I am going to be free on Wednesdays and cant think of much I'd like to do more on my day off from sailing than, well....sail. So if you live in or near Philly or NJ and want a sailing partner for the day please please please contact me! I will be forever in your debt and would invite you to cruise with me in the Caribbean when I get there!

Re: Looking for a sailing buddy near Philadelphia

So I posted this in two seperate spots trying to get as much coverage as I can. Anyway I wanted to clarify that I am a NEW FEMALE SAILOR and am looking just for a sailing buddy on Wednesdays. I'm not a guy trying to lure women to his boat, just looking to get some more sea time.

Re: Looking for a sailing buddy near Philadelphia

I wish You luck. But a 5 day charter is not a lifestyle.
Be careful not to turn something you love into something you hate.
I started out at age 20, crewing on turkey, I mean day sail, boats from St Maarten.
(before cattlemarans).
ferrying tourists, mixing drinks and bucketing vomit, not so elegant.

Re: Looking for a sailing buddy near Philadelphia

Thanks, I get that I don't have a ton of experience. I do know what I'm looking to do with the rest of my life though, and sailing is it. So if anyone needs an extra hand on Wednesdays in Philly please respond L:
