Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Fairmont, MN, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; South America; South East Asia & East Asia; South Pacific Islands;
Experience: 50 ocean miles / 50 coastal miles
I’m looking to gain some sailing experience by working as crew. I’m recently retired and love to travel. I previously lived in Seattle,WA and became Bareboat Certified through the Island Yacht Club on Lake Washington in 1992. I have sailed with other Certified Captains on monohull charters in the Caribbean most recently in 2012. I’m a certified scuba diver and have over 500 dives logged since 1993. With many trips to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Routan, Honduras. I’m considering getting a sail boat and cruising in the Caribbean and this will either encourage or discourage that idea.
