Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Jacksonville, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 200 ocean miles / 5000 coastal miles
I'm 47 and have been sailing since I was 12. I raced Snipes, J24s, and different 28 to 32 ft PHRF boats. I own a Beneteau First 38 that I sail weekly with the family. I'm handy and persistent and can do electrical, mechanical, woodwork, and any type of job. I've been dreaming of crossing the Atlantic since I was 15 and now it's the time. I'm looking to crew at the ARC in January or any other crossing boat to learn so one day I can do it with my family on our boat. Help me make my dream a reality!
