Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Palmetto, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America; Mediterranean & Black Sea;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 100 coastal miles
Looking to join as crew, together with my husband Patrick, for shorter coastal or ocean sailing, preferably in the US or Caribbean. We are based on Florida's Gulf Coast and have sailed a Beneteau 35 as part of a shared ownership program. I have sailed also in the Mediterranean (Sardegna - Corsica). Our goal is to get some solid experience and ultimately feel comfortable to join the World ARC. We are both full time employed but with some flexibility in our schedules. (I am a Software Process Expert for the Automotive industry - Autonomous Driving -, Patrick is a Data Scientist). I am a decent cook and wouldn't mind at all taking on that task while on a sailing trip.
