Hi, this is my first time posting
. I am new to the world of sailing, reading as much as possible about cruising/live aboard and I would like to experience it first hand. I truly believe this will be my new lifestyle... I am 40, "separating", father of two beautiful little girls
- responsible, mechanically inclined, problem solver, outside the box thinker, team player, fast learner, adventurous, etc...
I am totally frustrated by this FAKE "American mentality
" which surrounds me and pervades those around me. I am ready to do a 180, buy an "old fixer-upper" sailboat and learn to sail it to REAL places with REAL people... First, I'd like to get some experience crewing
, meeting new friends/community and LEARNING
a new lifestyle.
I will be in Florida
for at least the month of January, solo on my motorcycle... I would like to find an opportunity(ies) to crew somewhere warm in the Caribbean
. I can pitch
in to cover my expenses and will pull more than my own weight...
Also, any advice you might offer me
would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!
