I just joined cruiser's forum with the specific purpose of finding a couple weeks crewing
adventure. I posted the following to my bio:
"Experienced sailor & owner available to crew 1-3 week stretches. Transports ok.
Just retired 59 yo M., counselor & cellist (still performing, touring, recording) Fit, healthy, easygoing. Good navigation
, mechanical, helm
and sail-handling experience. I'm not really interested in sailing with big egos or big drama."
Sorry I cannot PM you until I'm a bit more established here.
Also, I sold my Loreto, Baja property last year, and have a long-time love for, experience in (including sailing), and good connections with Baja and mainland Mexico
. My brother, Bruce and I bought a place in Hawaii
last year and planned to build there this winter. My dear brother (who was also my best friend) passed away Oct. 23, from a very rare and aggressive leukemia (11 weeks after diagnosis) - I'll go to Hawaii
in Jan with my bro.'s ashes and an open heart to get my bearings..... In the meantime, I am a bit at loose ends and a couple of weeks in the wind
would do my heart good.
Please let me know if you're still looking for crew.
