Short and sweet I am a new sailor and am looking right now for that 1st vessel. I have recently completed the US sailing basic sailing course for sloop
rigged vessels. I am looking to gain more experience and knowledge in sailing but as a graduate student lack the extra funds for more classes
at the moment. If anyone is in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area that is willing to bring me aboard and show me the ropes please let me know. Not available for more than weekend trips due to school
but I am eager to learn and start sailing. I am 31, male, former military, a real fast learner, and very passionate about sailing. I grew up on and around boats and the water
so not a landlubber just getting his feet wet. I can offer some monetary payment or my services as a deck
hand even beyond the learning
phase (which I am sure never really ends anyway), or cleaning/maintenance upon return. Really just want to get out on the water
and learn more about sailing. Cheers!
