Hi, Greetings from sunny San Diego
I am new to this board. I have been sailing for about 2 years. My first adventure was a sail through the Guna Yala (San Blas Islands) Panama
two years ago. I LOVED it. I have since taken basic sailing in San Diego
. I am from Bermuda
and have been around boats much of my life. My goal is to become a cruiser after I retire in 2 years. I am looking to get as much experience as I can and to find a berth on a boat
I am not quite fluent in Spanish but can hold my own. I am a scuba
certified to the basic level and have been scuba diving
, San Diego, and Catalina
. I am a good snorkeler. I am far more interested in the natural history
of a place and the people who live there than I am drinking but I do drink a little. I am very mellow, get along well with most everyone. Oh and I am a liberal.
I am the CEO of an organization and have no desire to be captain
. I have had enough responsibility to last a lifetime. But I would make a good first mate.
My goal is to live on a boat
, explore the nooks and crannies of this world from the water
and learn as much as I can. I am not interested in sailing in icy cold water
, so sailing in Norway
is not for me, but the Med, Caribbean
, Polynesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, etc would be right up my alley. The UK would be fine too, even though the water is cold.
Right now I am looking for people to sail with on weekends in San Diego. I have references
as a sailor too. So if you would like to go for a sail in San Diego, or Ensenada or a bit north, give me a jingle so to speak. Thank you.
