I have recently retired from my job of 30 plus years and, I am interested in gaining more sailing experience. My wife and I are planning to buy a cruising boat of our own in the near future. We both have our ICC certificates, but would like some more real world experience on boats. We have been on a BVI 8 day charter with a captain. We have also crossed from Jacksonville Florida to the Bahamas in 2019 as crew.
