It’s been my dream to be able to sail to Europe
. I love sailing and I love a good adventure. In the last few years I rode
a bicycle from Chicago to New Orleans
and I have climbed mountains in Brazil
I’m relatively new to sailing but I did spend last summer as a crewmember on a 33’ racing boat
out of Chicago. We participated in major regattas, Saturday afternoon and Wednesday night races and several overnight passages. I crewed on the Chicago to Mackinac yacht race
. On that race
we rotated crew on a watch schedule and encountered rough weather
over a period of two and a half days.
I’m enthusiastic and curious. I get along well with people and love a challenge. I cook well and speak Russian and Portuguese. I have experience in wood working and basic mechanical and electrical
troubleshooting. The timing of your transatlantic crossing fits my schedule and I would like to speak with your, further. Should you require references
, I would be happy to supply them.
Very truly yours,
