Upbeat, fit, and motivated newbie guy based out of New Orleans
eager to commit to a sailing crew for weeks or months.
Aim to gain sailing skills and experience from good people so down the road I can wisely acquire and purchase
my own sailboat. But good people matter! Enjoyable crew mates rank higher than some ostentatious fancy sailboat or specific destination
Available on short notice -- I would jump on an offer especially if over next weeks! Will do all I can (within a budget) to get myself to your location to join you. Miami
? Onward? Passport ready.
