Seeking to sail from Antigua to Azores

Hello there! I'm an easy going, hardworking guy who loves the ocean and desires to learn more about sailing and living at sea. I have a tremendous love and respect for the ocean and for those who live on her. I have limited experience sailing, although I am always driven to focus and do my best at all times. I take orders well, although I am capable of quick and intuitive independent thought. I am well-suited to living in austere conditions, and strive for simple living. I am seeking an experienced captain to trade knowledge and experience for my hard work and dedication.

When on land or at sea I enjoy relaxing, taking in the beauty of nature, a good book, and a pleasant conversation. I love to learn and challenge myself to constantly improve myself and the world around me.

I grew up on a small farm in western Pennsylvania, USA. Far from the ocean, I took naturally to hiking, climbing, camping, biking, and all of the other natural pleasures on the rigid world of land. I spent as much time in/on rivers and lakes, and I escaped to the ocean as many times as possible over the course of my life. After spending 10 years learning and applying skills for the software and technology industry, I became thoroughly disappointed with the unfulfilled life of an office worker in the crowded cities of asphalt, glass, and steel; hence a greater participation in the more adventurous aspects of life - an intentional life of purpose.

As far as sea experience goes, in 2020 I lived and worked aboard a 60ft trimaran in the Caribbean. We mostly upgraded, maintained, and repaired shipboard systems while also running a few guest charters through the USVIs and BVIs.

I am currently aboard the good ship Cassiopeia in the Bahamas. After some repairs, we will sail her to Antigua. I will be seeking to help a crew sail transatlantic from Antigua (following the Classic Yacht Regatta) to the Azores whenever the opportunity presents itself. Maybe you are sailing the west-east ARC this summer and would like good company and capable hands? Please reach out to ask me anything or to present an opportunity to sail! Be well, my friends.
