Hi! I am moving back to Canada
mid June and I am looking for a medium-long term sailing opportunity for the summer months before getting back into the job search.
A little background about me: 31, non-smoker, light social drinker (no alcohol on offshore
passages) who has been sailing for about 7 years. In terms of papers Ė I have CYA coastal navigation
standard, CYA basic keelboat, US Sailing Bareboat
Cruising certificate, VHF license
. In more practical terms, I have about 1300 nautical miles as skipper/first mate/crew including:
- Co-leased a 25 foot C&C in Toronto for 2 years and sailed Lake Ontario regularly throughout the summer months.
- Living in Europe (France/UK) for about 4 years now where Iíve sailed generally around the Isle of Wight/Solent on 34-38 yachts.
- To better my practical skills, Iíve taken three mile-building courses in the UK with RYA instructors to practice night sailing exercises (find unmarked unlit buoy in pouring cold April rain at 3 am type exercises)
- Chartered at 37 footer out of Croatia and skippered a relatively amateur crew for 7 days.
In addition - I rarely get seasick. Can read charts/cook in rough seas. I used to be swimming instructor/lifeguard but certifications (including First Aid/CPR) are expired now.
Hoping to sail from somewhere on the eastern seaboard. Please do get in touch!
