Looking for Captain/1st Mate, Delivery Crew or Racing/Racing Crew position

Hi. I'm looking for a professional, well organized, safety conscious and adventurous active sailing crew/vessel. I have a full skill set ranging from Skipper to tender driving, fishing, diving, engine maintenance, etc. I have multiple Atlantic passage experience east and west, don’t smoke, have a passion for sailing and traveling, and am just as happy to cross oceans as winter in the Caribbean or summer in the Med.

My most recent experience consists of 2 years as Skipper/1st Mate/ Engineer on multiple Atlantic passages as well as Med/Caribbean/Bahamas/Red Sea/Indian Ocean/Seychelles sailing on a 72 ton steel Conrad 66' cutter sloop with dual electric furling head stays, mast furling, and hydraulic sail trim/electric winches. Prior to that I spent 6 mths as Skipper/1st Mate in the South Pacific, Cook Strait, New Zealand's East Coast, Minerva Reef, and Savu Savu, Fiji on a 1983 55' Tayana center-cockpit cutter sloop supporting an older couple who owned it. The rest of my experience has been in the Chesapeake Bay and in South Florida as skipper on a Catalina 455 and racing a Tripp 33'. Farr 395 and a Tartan 40'. References upon request.

QUALIFICATIONS:
-USCG 100 ton Master Captain (Sail Endorsed)
-US Sailing Keelboat, Cruising and Bareboat Instructor
-2 regatta seasons racing a Tripp 33 (5 member crew)

Software Experience:
B&G chart plotters, Raymarine C, E & G series, Navionics, Sea-IQ, Predictwind, GRIB files, Windy.com, Aviation weather and forecasting (METAR, TAF, ATIS), region specific weather forecasters and route planning

Although I don't claim to be a mechanic, I do have a good body of knowledge on Volvo D4-180 diesels (changing oil/impellers/filters/coolant/diodes), outboards, fuel/water systems, etc. and am very technically minded.

Additional skills:
-Commercial Pilot
-Drone Pilot (6 yrs with Mavic & Phantom series)
-Lifetime of running center console open fishing boats (Contenders)
-Lifetime of waterskiing, kneeboarding, wakeboarding
-Volunteer for the Coral Restoration Foundation
