I’m Terry, for the past 5 years I have been preparing for a new life chapter. I have been living in a van to save money to quit my job and sail around the world. I have been taking sailing lessons, and other training such as diesal mechanic classes, scuba diving (PADI Dive Master), medical training, etc. I have been helping with sailboat deliveries and sailing as much as I can to become an asset on a boat as crew. I am hoping to come aboard and sail around the world with you.
