Lyndsay Romero, female, 43

Ref 88640

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Chesapeake, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 900 coastal miles
I retired from the US Navy and am seeking opportunities to log offshore hours and learn everything there is to learn about sailing! My husband and I plan to sell everything and trade our home for a liveaboard once all of our children have "launched" (one down, three to go!). I've been sailing for about four years now; we have taken ASA courses 101, 103, 104, and 114 and have bareboat chartered catamarans in Florida and the BVI. We have also competed for three seasons in weekly races aboard other captains' boats. My skillset includes planning and organization, provisioning, watch standing, cooking, cleaning, morale boosting, SCUBA, and karaoke. I have lived all over the world, and love to meet new people. I have not stood an overnight watch YET, but I am eager for the opportunity to start. We are, unfortunately, unavailable from 22 May - 3 June 2024 as we will be on a Bahamas - Chesapeake Bay passage.
