I am a 60 yr young Aussie female who has been crewing/sailing on a Freeport
36 in The Sea since April this year when I ran away from home...took early retirement! I did have some time off for good behavior in summer to go North to Alaska
, camping and cruising for a month and stayed on land in Loreto for September. But all up 7 glorious months of sailing from La Paz
to San Basilica and back, then over here. Was in Puerto Escondido for Hurricane
Have been traveling with a great Captain
, who like me is very easy going. Which is pretty important in close quarters. I don't have the luxury of my own cabin
and have spent this time with a bunk is the salon
that I make up day and night, but I do have good storage
space and my sense of humor
is still intact!
We are presently at El Cid marina in Mazatlan and I am on my way South as I fly back home from Puerto Vallarta
in Feb. So unfortunately I would be of no use to you this year. I am emailing as I wondered if you have been foolish enough to venture into the realms of a plan for next year. Will you be still sailing in Mexico
then? One idea for me is the San Salvador Rally.
I am coming back for another tour of duty and will start in Calgary, Canada
next July whilst visiting friends and doing house sits and hopefully get some sailing in B.C. My plan is to be back down to Mexico
around the beginning of October. Missing the summer! All written in sand after Canada
. Will keep an eye out for you guys and wish you many happy adventures in the meantime. Nice to know some other Aussies are out there doing it!
