noelex 77

    Bio: My wife and I started sailing 27 years ago when we hired a 30 foot yacht from a desperate charter company, that gave us a boat without any prior sailing experience. We didn't kill ourselves and quickly bought our own 25 foot yacht that we completed in the backyard and then spend every holiday and many weekends racing and sailing to some of the remote anchorages that we love. Six years ago we retired early and started full time cruising. Currently in the Med on our aluminium yacht, with plans to slowly sail back to Australia over the next 10 or 20 years.

    noelex 77's Boat: Aluminium yacht
    Location: Full time cruising. Currently in the Med.

    Bio: Driving a computer during the daytime means I need to escape to the outdoors at the weekends. Viv and I bought our yacht together having spent months looking. We now regularly cruise the Solent and spend our holidays in the Channel Islands and France. Long term goal is to retire and cruise as far south as Morrocco and as far north west as Ireland. An Atlantic crossing could be a possibility, I want to park April Lass on that beach in the corner of Rodney Bay, St Lucia :-)

Steady Hand

    Bio: Howdy! My name is Steadman Uhlich. I have blue water in my veins and stars in my eyes as I was borne to the sea, sailing in my mothers arms, when I was but a tot of one. The sea has called me ever since. Curiosity + Knowledge + Experience = Point of View + Humility + Humor Despite 40+ years of studying boats, varied experiences sailing, and a few thousand miles of blue water under my keel, I claim no expertise in sailing here on this forum and humbly come with open mind and wide ranging curiosity, ready to learn and to enjoy a gam. I am open to learning from anyone, be they old salts or those who have less experience or years or miles. If we meet someday, I could pull some lines for you as crew or share a brew or a yarn or two. I consider myself a "cruiser" at heart, as I more enjoy seeing things and places, rather than racing. I also admire classic and traditional boats (e.g. gaff rigged, wood) and contemporary boats and would enjoy sailing on any boat of any size or age. I am not a hard-core racer, but I have sailed and raced on dinghies and small boats like a Thistle, Prindle 18 Cat, Cal 20, a classic wood Folk Boat, J-24s and J-29s, Hobie 33, J-35, as well as larger boats like Beneteaus, Jeanneau 42 and others. As part of a competitive race crew I sailed on San Francisco Bay while changing headsails in 20+ knots winds on the cold and wet pitching foredeck of a J-35 in many races. I was a trimmer on an offshore race to the Farallons on a Santa Cruz 50 ULDB "sled" at 20+ knots (boat speed!) and got time steering a Farr 40 race boat on a fast run during an overnight race in high seas off the California coast. I have experienced both a true strong gale and flat calm while on a 30 day passage from Hawaii to San Francisco on a 37 foot sloop (I was the navigator and no GPS was used). Need experienced crew on a passage? I am an experienced and responsible watch-stander, have passed several levels in ASA courses, am a very good cook, know something about navigation, have professional level skills with a camera, and am considered a cheerful guest or shipmate, trustworthy and honest, a good conversationalist, and I am always happy to help or lend a hand. There are many verbatim testimonial comments about my character, personality, trustworthiness and skills found online on my studio website or on my consulting website. While I am living singlehanded now, I still hope to find my mate in a merry mermaid, with whom I hope to sail the big blue, making our home one that goes with the wind and wave, and always with a course set by our free spirits. Art and sailing are two of my passions. I enjoy discussing and sharing them with others. Please contact me if you also like traditional or classic boats. While I cannot post a link to my website here, you can see proof of my passion for traditional and classic boats by simply googling my name (Steadman Uhlich + Marine Paintings) or look for me on Facebook (Steadman Uhlich). :)

    Steady Hand's Boat: Just over the Horizon.
    Location: Currently Land locked in Texas. Moving to a coast in 2015.
