I’ve been waiting for this voyage! I’ve looked at every post over the last several years, and none seemed just right. Any regrets in my life are not blue water sailing more. I am easy going, accomplished, funny, non-snorer, willing to help in any way. Looking for a fun trip! I was unable to edit my current age: a health, active 77 I’m not sure my phone (802-989-2052), email ([email protected]) nor town (Lincoln, vermont) came through. 10+ years of experience does not fully describe my experience: I have sailed all my life. As a younger person I raced small boats as skipper (moth-North American Ladies Moth Champion, lightning, etc) and crew (IOD, Star) on Long Island Sound. I cruised the east coast of US with my family. My husband and I owned a 36’ Sabre and sailed to the Bahamas as co-captains. After his death, I cruised that boat on Lake Champlain. I chartered as Captain in the BVIs, twice in the last several years.
