- UPDATE 2017: Please don't take the Dumb and Dumber approach of "so you're saying I have a chance...." just because I'm female and we'll be in close quarters. I AM NOT DTF, NOT INTO QUID PRO QUO to get or stay aboard a boat. Please don't be "that guy" looking to trade favors for sailing.
Sailing gigs could either be on the Delivery scenario or more of a Leisurely Cruisin' kind of thing - or anywhere in between. I may like looking like a girly-girl but have no problem getting dirty and working my ass off. I expect the capt to pay for all on-board expenses and those able to cover transportation to/from the boat will be prioritized.
My schedule is very flexible and can accommodate just about any situation if all the other factors line up. I also plan to vlog my experiences and share these adventures with others so I'd love to be around people who could get into that concept as well.
I'm quite a capable cook/stew (would actually prefer to be allowed to take the lead on provisioning) so no fear of the "ramen noodle and PBJ sandwich" monotony. Chowders, curries and cassaroles are just a start...;-) I have a US Passport, clean US domestic and International driver's license, am a non-smoker/social drinker, no criminal background. I'm a quick study with a sincere desire to travel and immerse myself in the sailing world!

Letters of Recommendation from last two Capt's were cheerfully offered to any prospective Capts. The first captain, well, there's a reason the first part of my profile reads as it does...
