Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Idaho Falls, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 2000 ocean miles / 30000 coastal miles
Love Sailing!! Owned a 30 ft CheoyLee sailboat in Southwest Florida for over 35 yrs. Extensive sailing throughout the Keys, Bahamas, Upper Caribbean, Cuba and 2 trips down the eastern U.S. Many years ago, I crewed on a 50 ft C&C (Insanity) in the Gulf Stream races. Business took me away from the ocean to Idaho for the last 12 years until my recent retirement and now I want to fulfill a longtime "bucket list" by sailing in the ARC!! Yes, I am a senior but am in VERY good health and will pass any required physicals (Played in USTA National Tennis Finals last 3 years). I would be solid and reliable crew, doing what is asked with no drama. Good Health, Ray Gordon
