Experience: 0 ocean miles / 350 coastal miles
Hello, I'm looking to get ocean miles. I've spent two seasons racing 35 foot keelboats, a season dinghy sailing a 470 and I have had great fun on longer day cruises. However, I'm extremely interested in building up to bluewater sailing. I'm currently a member of the Victoria sailing Co-op to gain keelboat experience, and I'm sailing smaller dinghies in the coastal waters of Victoria BC. I am looking for bluewater miles though. I'd love to trade eager hard work for experience on your boat. I'm a dilligent, methodical and thoughtful learner, and overall an easy-going person. I'm also tidy, and love the reward from keeping things spick and span. When I'm not sailing, I work as a software developer. My spare time has me using my hands to fix bicycles, read books or pluck my guitar or banjo. I also have interests in Ham radio, astronomy, and Spanish/French language learning. Thanks for reading. Cheers!
