Mountain Child looking towards the Sea

Hello everyone!

My name is Andrew Ferkiss. I'm 17 years old and I currently live and work in Beautiful Pingree Park, CO as a Prep Chef.

I have little experience on the open ocean but have been sailing with my Grandpa off the coast of Long Island, NY my entire life.

I"m looking for a crew position- one that could help me gain some more advanced Seamanship experience.

I look forward to talking with you!!

-Andrew

Re: Mountain Child looking towards the Sea

Check out this website. I can't vouch for it in any way, but I have a friend who used this site to jump on a delivery boat out of Newport. I think it involves a minimal subscription payment and they send you a news letter with a list of crewing opportunities on delivery boats.
