I am a 40 year old male that has been around power boats most of my life. I am newer to sailing but have ASA
101-104 and I need some open ocean miles before I attempt to take my family
on a circumnavigation
around the world. (That will be a ways off but is a lifetime goal).
I sail weekly on an Irwin
33 so I know most of the basics but really want to learn how to handle a boat
when the weather
is not optimal.
Cold, wet weather
and night watches are OK with me. I am also a pretty good cook and know all of the basics about plotting thru some US Power Squadron classes
I do not smoke and occasionally drink but I can go without that for some time.
I understand hard work
and donít mind being told I am doing something wrong. I want this opportunity to learn.
