Looking to gain more experience and miles

Hey everyone. I've been sailing since 2015. My second week out sailing I jumped right in and bought a catalina 27 that I took out almost daily the first year. Learned a decent amount then. I've also done some of the weekly races on other boats here in Santa Cruz California. I currently have a 1980 Irwin 37 center cockpit. I brought her from Ventura CA to Santa Cruz CA where she currently is. That was a very awesome learning curve for me, being my first time anchoring in the channel island's and having to run from bad weather. I ended up gutting the interior of my boat, upgrading the bulk heads to plumbing and electrical and fiberglass work, standing rigging, running rigging................... you know how it goes. I've been doing all sorts of construction pretty much my whole life. I worked with my dad in his glass shop when I was younger and since have learned pretty much most that goes into building a house. I also got into car restoration and completed a few of those. Being out at sea is one of the best places for me and I would really like to transition my work out on the water doing boat deliveries and working on getting my captain's license. I have a very flexible schedule and I promise you I won't let you down if you will have me aboard. I don't drink or smoke. I'm Always in good spirits and easy going as long as there's coffee around ;)

Thanks, Floris
