I am a lifelong sailor. From my childhood daysailing Long Island Sound and later the Lower Potomac and Chesapeake my parents were avid day sailers who occasionally stretched out our family of five for the occasional 3 night cruise. On board 80’s vintage coastal cruisers I learned the basics of sail handling, points of sail, basic navigation and col regs. When I was 15 I attended Florida Sea Base and lived aboard a Morgan Out Island 41 for six nights. I cruised the Florida Keys and learned to pick up a mooring ball and snorkel. Later as an adult I rediscovered my love for sailing. I completed a seven night live-aboard ASA 101-104 course in 2016 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. I have completed some miles since then however living several hours from the sea and now raising a family of my own I have little time or money to build hours on my own. My goal at Ocean Crew Link is to find skippers seeking to teach a new generation of blue-water sailing enthusiasts. My greatest skill on a yacht is situational awareness. On a recent night at anchor as a guest of another skipper, I awoke to a loud ‘thwack’ in the middle of the night. Before retiring for the evening the skipper had informed us of the potential for a slack tide and the anchor rode to wrap the keel. I heard this tell tale sound in the night and roused the skipper and crew. We were able in short order to sort out the wrap before a complete entanglement had occurred. In addition to awareness, I posses functional knowledge of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. This knowledge comes from my youth aboard an aging sailboat in my youth as well as years of practice taking apart and rebuilding those systems on small boats, trailers, and vehicles. I am a keen cook and capable in a cramped galley. I cook often while camping and understand the art of provisioning and making the most out of fresh ingredients as well as maintaining a nutritious diet from shelf stable ingredients. A crew position that would be a good fit for me would include a skipper who clearly communicates expectations and responsibilities. A yacht that is operated on routine with a focus on safety. I enjoy music, games, and telling stories. I do not consume alcohol and I am not offended by those that do. I do not smoke and prefer a yacht that is smoke free belowdecks.
