pirate New Sailor; Landlocked in CO, but not for long

Hello Fellow Sailors,
I'm a seasoned sailor, currently taking refresher courses and getting more experience on the lakes of Colorado. I've sailed on the Gulf of Mexico, San Francisco, and the Chesapeake bay. I would really be interested in being a crew member from Cali to Hawaii in June/July.

PS Love Scuba diving too

You might want to post a message in the crew Wanted / Available section. It's where those looking for crew might come later on and find your post. It helps to talk about yourself and the experience you have. People don't usually just grab crew without knowing some things about them and you would obviously want to do the same.

As long as you are honest about your experience you can avoid some poor expectations.

I took out a Capri 22 at Lake Dillon at 10,000 or so feet a few years ago. It was really strange. Wind was gusting from 20 to about 50 but it didn't have the density of sea level winds. When running the winds didn't feel that strong because of the lower pressure, but when we came about and went to weather, it nearly knocked us down. And I didn't want any part of that cold water. Sure was beautiful, though, sailing with the continental divide in view.
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

Aloha John,
Welcome aboard! I hope you can find a crew position headed this way. Checked Latitude 38?
Kind regards,
