Looking to help-out & get experience

Hi everyone,

I'm 28, live in the DC suburbs, I'm pretty green with sailing, have taken an intro course; but don't assume I know more than the basics. Now I am looking to help-out and gain more experience however I can, whether it's just helping you day-sail, or blue water cruising from A to B. It's not much of a problem for me to get to/from wherever your boat/ship/yacht is, but I figure that the bigger issue is making sure in-advance that we'll get along, that you don't expect me to smoke crack with you on your boat, and that I'm confident you don't want to beat me with a sack of doorknobs in the night (or the day, really).

I'm self-employed, and my work, more or less, takes care of itself at this stage, so I can get away for a week or two, maybe a month or two if it's during winter, and it's not a big deal. Right now, I only have to be in New York the last week in September, and Miami the first week in November.

Re: Looking to help-out & get experience

Sailboat, H SW42, looking for crew to sail from Annapolis to Florida in November. Some offshore, some ICW depending on weather. The boat is in very seaworthy condition with all of the comforts and up to date mechanical, rigging and navigation systems. 30 years of sailing experience, no experience on your side necessary just a good attitude and a sense of humor!

Boat homeport is Annapolis.

Re: Looking to help-out & get experience

Updating this post, much thanks to those who considered me, but found others with better availability in October. Now that my latest project is done, my schedule now is obvious.

I'm available after November 12th. Transport to your boat is a non-issue.

Oh, and answers to other (somewhat surprising to me) questions that have come-up thus far in some of the exchanges:
I'm a guy, I'm white, I'm straight, I have no physical or mental handicaps or diseases, I don't use any drugs, I do have a drink or two socially.

Re: Looking to help-out & get experience

Hi, my name is Larry I sail on a 37' Ranger and am planning on sailing from Marathon, FL late November to Early December to Mexico then cruise down the coast to Belize, Honduras and spending next hurricane season in Guatemala. If this sounds interesting to you please let me know and we will discuss it further. Good luck with your search. Larry

Re: Looking to help-out & get experience

I'm looking for crew to leave Solomons, MD out of the Bay and coast on the outside down at least to Beaufort, NC or if you have the time, to port hop on to Cape Canaveral, Fl. Hope to leave in about two weeks.
The boat is a 36' Nauticat Motorsailer. Very seaworthy with new all new rigging, new HD Radar, AIS and Raymarine plotter, wind instruments and autopilot.
If you have not yet found a ride please email me ASAP at svfinlandia(at)gmail(dot)com

Al, SV Finlandia
