pirate Stoked To Be Here And Meet Other Like Minded Sailors, Especially Female Sailors.

Hello! My name is Amanda! I was raised on the water in New Smyrna Beach. I come from a family of motor yachts and liveaboards. I am in love with sailing and have lived aboard a Catalina 30 with my 2 kids and black lab. I just got a nice 29' Columbia that I can't wait to sail! She is on a cradle right now and needs some very minor TLC to make her shine! This time around I am getting super serious with not taking life so seriously and following my passions of sailing and exploring!
This July I am finally getting my captain's license! I want to crew more boats and set out on some more of my own adventures. I am looking for more women who are doing the same or who would like to in hopes of synergy and learning more together!
I am also planning a sail from Florida to Puerto Rico in the near future. I would be interested in any info/advice and also if anyone would like to form a regatta to cruise down there together!! I might add that I am fluent in Spanish!
Please message me if you have any info or interest in participating in this cause!!!! Thank you!!!!

Impressive. Congrats on your Captains licence. Do you plan on commercial or charter operations?

Thank you! I will look up the fb! So far thinking charter but we will see where I end up. I have a few investors helping me along for my own charter. I just keep manifesting my dreams and going with the positive flow!

Welcome!

I see you are in FL. A great resource is down the way in Fort Lauderdale. Google Pam Wall.
