New Sailor Reporting Onboard
Hi everyone, I am reporting in from Virginia Beach, VA and looking forward to cruising teh Caribbean in the next few months if I can find a good crewing opportunity. My wife & I recently returned from a Carnival Cruise and after a stop in Antigua, I caught the sailing bug again. I owned a couple of small sailboats and ran a sailing program for the US Navy (44' Luder Yawls) but have no off-shore experience.
If you or anyone you know needs a crewmember for a few weeks up to 2 months starting in June 2012, please let me know. I don't smoke, am very fit, straight male (not looking for romance). I just want to sail with an experienced Skipper to get the knowledge/skills I need to do an extended cruise in the future. I am a retired Naval Officer with years at sea on Naval Ships (FF, DD, CV, auxillaries, etc).
I would love to crew, I am handy at most mechanical task, have a pretty solid background sailing; however, I know I have a lot to learn. I can reached via this post or email: rob "at" domavector "dot"com
