seeing the world from a new perspective
Hello, my name is Andrew Roesch-Knapp and I am a 19-year old American citizen who attended the University of Victoria in British Columbia last year. Since then I have realized there is so much of the world that I have yet to experience before I want to settle back into university life. I do have a decent amount of sailing experience and would love to be a part of a sailing trip in the upcoming year. As I have just finished teaching sailing yesterday in the Seattle area, my schedule is clear and I am ready for just about any adventure thrown my way. Thus far I have e-mailed a fair amount of people that have listed their boat trips on online crew wanted lists, but have had no serious leads. I am hoping for suggestions as to how to hook up with boats to make this the year I dream about. My hope is to gain experience this year, ideally even some certifications, so that in the years to come I can work as sailing crew and eventually have my own sailboat that I can travel on.
Looking forward to all types of suggestions,
