I suppose I would be rated as an able seaman. In my 30s and a bit of a health
nut. I always say "aye, captain!" when given ship orders. LOL I change sails
like nobody's business!
Looking to crew on this year's Baha Haha. Coming up soon! Oct to Nov.
I am in San Diego
so looking to come on board in southern california
(San Diego would be best, though willing to go up to Newport
for example), and continue for the legs down the coast, and then fly back home at Cabo. I am a working professional so I have 3 weeks time off to help out a skipper
and have fun. I have a BSEE degree and professionally I am a computer engineer
(that's the short version). I also have a HAM license
. So, I can fix many technical problems.
My own 34' sailboat is in San Diego
and this would be my first long offshore
trip, hope to learn a lot so I can do Baha Haha as a skipper
myself next year.
I don't drink (personal preference) and don't smoke or use substances. I haven't been significantly seasick so far, once got fairly queasy in an overnight race
when the wind
shut off and swell was churning like a washing
machine, though got over it once she started sailing again. So I have not yet found a need to take seasick meds. My preference would be to find a ship's crew & captain
who are not drinkers, I mention this mainly because of what I've seen in the racing
crowd (not really my style).
I have completed many sailing classes
over many years such as ASA
101, US Sailing 101 and cruising, US Power Squadrons engine maintenance
, piloting, advanced piloting, seamanship etc, currently taking cruise
planning (these are all 6-9 week courses, lots of good info). The US PS classes
are amazingly good quality BTW, especially considering the price
charged. My sailing experience is mostly offshore day sailing
and short races offshore.
Send me a personal note via PM to discuss more, which may include giving ref's and asking for ref's. Cheers!
