I'm an inexperienced sailor looking to learn the ropes. I would like to begin to acquire the years of skills and experience needed to sail my own boat
across the world's oceans. I work
as forest firefighter so i have 3-4 months off each winter...this schedule would seem to lend itself perfectly to a cruising lifestyle. The only thing missing is my skills! So I'm looking for a starting point...
A bit about me, 30yrs old, university grad, quick learner, honest, no smoking, clean, quiet, hard working, can offer skills in carpentry, general maint., and cooking
. certified in CPR, medical
First Responder (and of course, firefighting). marginal guitar skills. scuba+surf.
I live in California
, but I usually travel and explore the world (on land) in the winter so i can meet up with a boat
nearly anywhere. I am available approx. mid january 09 to mid april 09.
Any responses or leads would be much appreciated!
