Well, I'd offer except that I sold my boat
about two months ago, so right now I'm looking for my next one.
I would also mention that it is not -- strictly speaking -- "ocean sailing" here. We're on the Gulf of Mexico
, so it's just really big Gulf sailing.
If you don't get an offer, there are a number of places around here that will take you out for a cruise
-- for a price
, of course. I've bareboat
chartered from these people before... https://sailingflorida.com
They were good to deal with and the boats were in good shape. I know that they do captained "cruises" (half-day, dinner, that sort of thing). I suspect that they stay within Tampa Bay, though they might go out into the Gulf if you want them to.
(By the way, in case you can't tell it from my screen-name, I used to live in Colorado.)
