Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 5000 ocean miles / 5000 coastal miles
I've been sailing for over 30 years and have accumulated approximaely 10,000 sea miles. Its been a few years since I've done any ocean sailing (did a major retrofit of my last boat - a '81 Alberg 29 which kept me busy) but am up to the task. My bucket list includes an ocean crossing so I was intrigued by your planned crossing from Mexico to Tahiti. Below is a partial list of my sailing experience. I would welcome the opportunity to be considered for crew.
