Novice at Sailing

My name is Gary and I currently live in North Carolina. I went sailing this past summer in the Carribean with two friends on their Fountain Pejot catamarine sailboat Certitude. I caught the sailing bug and was wondering if there was anyone out there that would like a learming mate on their boat this year. I am an accomplished aircraft pilot with my own plane, so I know a bit about navigation. However, I would classify myself as a novice in the Sailing Field as I have a lot more to learn befor purchasing my own boat.

I am an Architect by profession and can perform my work anywhere there is internet access. Sharing with expenses of operating a boat is also no problem. If you are interested or know of someone needing a mate, please contact me at Plans4U2 <at> yahoo <dot> com

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Pilots make great sailors. In addition to the navigation skill is a skill many sailors would do well to use and that's using a checklist.
kind regards,

Howdy Gary,

And welcome!
I saw a post not to long ago from a fellow looking for crew to sail from St. Augustine, Fla south. If I can find it I'll send you a link.

Good Luck
