My sailing dream is in a holding pattern right now as I save money
for a boat purchase
I've taken the ASA
courses 101, 103, and 104 via a week long live aboard in La Paz
, MX and read just about every book on sailing but my experience is very limited. I have been out on boats in the ocean many times mostly fishing
out of San Diego
and Oceanside (overnight trips included) and have never gotten sea sick (knock on wood).
I'm mid 40's male. I currently reside in Ensenada, MX but originally from Southern California
. I'm in shape and am competent with tools. I do IT for work
so am also competent with technology. I can cook. I am employed at a regular job so need to be back on land M-F (though I can do a couple long weekends if needed).
What I'm Looking For
I'm looking to pick up weekend spots on sail boats in the Southern California
area (as far north as Los Angeles) and Northern Mexico
(west coast). These can be day sails
, overnight trips or whatever. So if your short on crew and need a night watchman to go from San Diego
to Ensenada, or Los Angeles down to San Diego (or anything like that) I can fill that spot for you. I'm just looking to gain some experience and keep what I know from getting rusty while I save up for a boat purchase
What I Provide
I'll cover all transportation costs to and from the boat (can get to LA with a 24 hour notice) and all food
I eat. I can cook, stand watch (even the middle of the night bad watches), assist with sailing.
