Hi I am a retired firefighter looking to get some sailing experience. I have taken cruising courses and navigation courses up to the intermediate level also I have been sailing albacores and Lasers . These are some of the courses I have taken: can sail 3, radio license., pleasure craft license. navigation courses 4 and electronic nav. through Canada Power Squadron, Catamaran sailing in the Grenadines. I did own a Mirage 27 about 20 years ago. I can swim. I've completed first aid courses. I find that working at a Fire Station working and living in close proximity you need to get the job done with people of different backgrounds and experience , this quality I think will help when sailing offshore.
