I am available immediately to join a boat
island hopping in the Caribbean
. I am happy to share expenses and contribute for boat maintenance
. I am currently on St Thomas, USVI. Sailed here from La Rochelle France
on a 41 ft catamaran
. In September I sailed a 42 ft cat from Athens to Sardinia. In June/July I got my RYA Coastal Skipper
cert in the Canary Islands. I am happy to join in on any maintenance
tasks including bottom scraping, engine
maintenance, wood work
and going up the mast
I am a 59 yr old US citizen, recently retired from a career in computers
, most recently as VP Engineering or CTO. Mostly worked in the San Francisco
area, but also in Germany
and Kenya. I enjoy all water
sports, hiking, cycling (in August I cycled 350 km down the Danube to Vienna).
My plan is to spend the next 6 to 12 months cruising on different boats, then purchase
one in mid to late 2016. Currently leaning towards a used cat in the 40 to 46 ft range. I want to get more experience with the "cruising lifestyle" to help me sort out priorities for the boat (size, configuration, equipment
, ...). I would prefer the Caribbean
, but am open to other areas.
If you, or someone you know, are open to this, please contact me!
