I miss the open water

My life took a topsy turvy turn in 2014 when I decided I would join a circumnavigation rally. First thing, I had to learn to sail. I had been a passenger for an afternoon aboard a sail boat many years before that, but that was the extent of my experience. I took my basic ASA class and scuba class (to not be so fearful of what's in the water.) Unfortunately the circumnavigation was cut short. Aboard a 52' sail boat out in the Pacific headed towards Tahiti, we had to turn around almost halfway there and return to San Diego. The second sail boat adventure was aboard a 36' Hunter down in Puerto Vallarta and in nearby coastal waters. Since then, I have worked as crew on private charters. The vessels I have become familiar with during that time are: 32' Catalina, 40' Catalina, 54' Jeanneau, 40' Californian, 56' & 60' SeaRay.

My professional experience aside from time on the water is a bit different and multifaceted. I have my Master's degree in Tradition Chinese medicine. I've trained and worked professionally as an acupuncturist, massage therapist, teacher and energy healer. I have been trained and certified as a raw chef. I do enjoy cooking (always have) which is why I have taken several cooking courses and love to host dinner parties. During undergrad, I focused on anthropology and art history. Which is why I lived in New York for 6 months during an internship at the Brooklyn Museum of Art Egyptology Department. There's more, but I think this is plenty to start with.

Experiencing life from the viewpoint of a deck is priceless!
