I'm an American ER doctor (now work
part-time) and professional sailor, looking to sail away from Panama
in mid June, maybe earlier. I'm free until early September.
I've 10 years sailing experience, cruising on 'plastic boats' in New England
, the Chesapeake, Caribbean
. Have worked since 2008 on tall ships doing leadership youth courses during the summers (deckhand and 2nd mate), and captained for Outward Bound on their pulling boats.
Have USCG 100-ton Master's Inland/Mate Near-Coastal license
+ STCW + radar
course. Also PADI Rescue
I travel with a small emergency medical
kit: but no bandaids!
I really would like to enjoy some time on the water
(I went to the high mountains in 2010 and I'm missing the loll of the ocean!). Hopefully I'll get more blue-water sailing to expand my license
and learn celestial nav.
I speak fluent Spanish. No smoking, no underway drinking (and only mild when stopped), no drugs. I love swing and salsa dance, play guitar and violin (but no instruments with me) and road bike.
Please drop a line if you're interested in experienced crew between June and September. Getting paid would be grand, but not required: however, low-cost living is a priority.
