I just joined this site to get some information for a sailing trip that I'm trying to arrange while I'm down in Australia
for a research
trip. So far it looks like my best bet would be a bareboat charter
around the whitsundays.
I am currently a medical
student at UC Irvine and started up sailing lessons
through the school
back in September. While the 14 foot capris are fun and all, I'd really like to upgrade to something larger, (and sail outside the harbor) to help prepare me for this summer.
As a student I obviously don't have much money
to spend, so I thought you guys might have some tips on how I can take my sailing to the next step for low cost. I don't know much about the sailing community or etiquette, but I've heard I might be able sail as crew for someone, but I don't know how to arrange that.
Glad to introduce myself and looking forward to the help/support from this site!
