Hi everyone! I'm putting out a general notice that I'm interested in and available for positions as delivery
crew. I'm based in Norfolk, VA on the East Coast
of the US.
I'm a 22-year-old woman, have been sailing, racing
, and instructing everything from dinghies to schooners to gaff-rigged wooden ketches to brand-new fiberglass
cruisers for over 15 years (I started very young), have been a professional deckhand
for 2 seasons, and am the owner of a 30-foot steel
sailboat that I completely restored and refit
myself in 2020 and captained from Annapolis
, MD to Florida
and back in 2021.
I am ideally looking for paid positions, even if only modestly, but am open to any offers that will help me build mileage. I am also ideally looking for positions around the East Coast
and Atlantic to start out, but would potentially be open to straying farther afield if the circumstances are right.
My boyfriend (also 22), who has also been sailing for several years now, is an electrical engineer
for the Navy
and we would love to do deliveries together if anyone is interested in 2 crew that already work
well together. His work
schedule is significantly less flexible, though.
DM me if interested, I am more than happy to send along a sailing resume and references!
