Am relocating to Northern VA and want to get involved with Chesapeake Bay
sailing, especially like weekends locally, but have also done off-shore deliveries up and down both coasts (about 7K nm/2+ months in past three years), and would be happy to do more. I have both ASA
& RYA certifications (ASA105 & ICC
But that said, I do still have a day job (as a computer geek) so unfortunately am not a full time sailor and so need a little advance notice. So I would be happy joining a weekend sailing for a skipper
who's fair weather
friends might find off season sailing a bit too bracing. Or seasonal deliveries, as I've crewed on the Caribbean
run and enjoy that spring & fall activity.
Oh, and glad to share with things like food
procurement, preparation and clean up, and other boat
chores, and also know that sometimes the issue is extra hands to help with off season "heavy lifting" (that lets me learn more about S/V maintenance).
I'm extremely experienced and skilled w/ electronics
, given my 30+ years experience with such, and not too shabby with other boat maintenance
chores, not to mention can spin an entertaining story on the night watch, when the wind
isn't howling in our ears at least. When the wind
is howling, I'm pretty comfortable in storms too.
