Default Seeking sailing experience for my father's 80th birthday.

Seeking sailing experience for my father's 80th birthday.


My fatherís 80th birthday is coming this year, and he has always had a longtime interest in sailing. It's always been a dream of his to be part of a sailing crew. Basically, he would like to sail on a boat at least 50 ft long for 7-14 days, without many stops on the way. My family would be willing to pay well for shared basic expenses. We are on the east coast, but we are willing to fly out anywhere.

He is mentally alert, and very responsible. He understands the basics of sailing, and did some as a child. He is in good shape for his age, and capable of doing the normal crew responsibilities within his physical limitations. (he probably wouldn't want to climb up a mast.) He would actually enjoy manning the helm at night.

He is in an army veteran, owned and operated a ranch and a travel agency, and has a pilotís license. He has good character, a good sense of humor, and is very easy to get along with.

If you had room aboard your boat, I could also accompany him (Iím 39). I know very little about sailing, but am a quick learner and would come prepared. Anyway, please let me know if this is something that is possible. I would greatly appreciate it.

I hope you are able to find a spot for your Dad. My father did his last ocean crossing at 86 and is looking forward to joining me for a while on my next journey, during which he will celebrate his 89th birthday. He remains fit and able. I wish you and your father well and look forward to hearing how he fared sometime in the future.
