Fairly new to sailing. I've keelboat, basic cruising and bareboat cruising Skipper certification. I look to grow my sailing experience, meet new people, and broaden my horizons around the world. Outdoor enthusiast that's novice at much, but enthusiastic about every opportunity I am afforded and able to participate in. Cycling, hiking, skiing, rock climbing, paddling kayaks have been all good, but a bit more limiting. I've been doing most activities solo for many years. I love the teamwork and camaraderie that is a present with sailing/sailors. Looking to assist as crew, practice and grow my competence. I am able in many capacities including I love to cook. Seeking to expand my sailing experience, knowledge and even new relationships. I love people, adventure, learning and am a very simple, easy going, positive personality, as well as easy at conversing and engaging others.
