Ahoy! Diane here, and I am hoping to crew in the Transpac to begin my world travels. I consider myself a rookie sailor, having finally gotten Bareboat certified last year. I sail in the SF Bay, taking out 32-38' sloops from the clubhouse, and crewing on larger vessels when the opportunity arises. Please let me know if you are in need of crew for 2011. I will be available beginning June for any help needed aboard or ashore. I have no schedule, so I can return to the states, but would prefer to go with someone who is cruising globally. While I am an athlete and competitor, I am comfortable with a wide range of intensities when it comes to 'racing' attitudes... safety and being part of a team (crew) always comes first.
