I am very interested in crewing
on Sun Dog from Florida
I just arrived in Ft. Myers this evening. I know you are not looking for crew until shortly after the first of the year but I thought I would drop you a message since we are both in the Ft. Myers area.
I've recently returned from 4 years of winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan and am currently taking a sabbatical with the goal of spending as much time on the water
as possible. I have just wrapped up two weeks of sailing J24s on San Francisco
Bay and flew to Florida several days ago to see what the sailing scene was like here. I'm flying back to the midwest on Tuesday, Dec. 20th to spend Christmas
with my family
. I'm completely free between Dec. 26th - Jan. 28th.
I crewed twice before starting my Afghanistan adventure - New York
City to North Carolina
in December 2005 and from Key West
in 2006. I enjoyed both trips and will forever remember seeing the snow fall as we sailed down the New Jersey
I've visited Belize
, Honduras and Costa Rica
before but I'm afraid I don't speak much Spanish.
Please send me an email
if you would like to meet while we are both in the Ft. Myers area. I am going fishing
on Friday but should be available Friday evening or anytime over the weekend. I also have a rental car and would be happy to give you a ride to the grocery store, West Marine
, etc. I'm also ready to help you with any boat chores you have between now and Tuesday. (I've read a lot about sailors helping other sailors and would like to do my part).
A few other random bits of information:
37 years old. 6'00". 190 lbs.
Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa
Non-smoker and occasional drinker (never on the water)
MBA degree (don't know what it's worth really)
Well-worn U.S. passport with a few empty pages in the back
but attached - girlfriend is working in Afghanistan until August 2012.
Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to meet up Friday evening or over the weekend.
