Male, 24, from Portsmouth

Hi all,

I am a young, enthusiastic male. I'm looking to gain some sailing experience. I am embarking on some back packing travels and the first step of my journey is crossing the channel. I would love to do it by yacht or small vessel, and this will hopefully be the first of many major sailing experiences. I am good at following instructions, able bodied, friendly and open to new experiences. I can't wait to get started.

thanks,
Chris Mcbride

Re: 24 from portsmouth

Welcome Chris, As you mention "crossing the channel" I assume you sailing out of Portsmouth in the UK,- right? Though there are channels near Portsmouth, New Hampshire & Portmouth, Virgina they are certainly not "the" channel. 'pleased to have those posting here and sailing out of the original Portsmouth!
