Looking for a Mile building, Voluntary work, Friendship or Novice Crew position
Hi - I retire in Jan or Feb 2022, and am looking for miles and to increase my basic level of competency. I have taken the basic course, been around boats most of my life, and am looking to get more miles in and around San Diego for now. San Diego, California, United States
I am new to sailing but love it. Looking for a partner for cruising.
I am a good cook and a fast learner. I can fish. I can clean fish and cook them but someone else has to kill them.
I love to snorkel and have my PADI card. I have a surfboard and a boogie board. I love to do all of those and have done them since I was a wee girl. I also love to just go for a row in a punt. I have been scuba diving in Bermuda, SoCal, and in Thailand. I can speak Spanish too. I like to do things locally. I am not a fan of resorts or fancy places. I want to be with the people, the regular, lovely people, the indigenous people. My kids are grown and doing well so now is my time to do what I have been wanting to which is go sailing. My hope is to be gone for years. I am interested in Austral-Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Bermuda (of course) Africa and the Med. Even as far north as the UK. It will be about 18 to 20 months before I clang the retirement bell.
I am the executive director of a nonprofit that does river restoration work. So I am very environmentally minded and have done a lot of advocacy. I have a background in government and am an urban planner by training. I am intellectually curious. I want to travel with people who are intellectually curious. I have a limited number of international contacts in the oceanography and climate science area.
I am easy going and don't get riled easily. I am calm and thoughtful in disasters.
I am a very light drinker and am not interested in partying a lot. Rather I am interested in exploring the most out of the way places and meeting people whose cultures and way of life are different than mine. I would rather have a couple of good friends than a boatload of fair-weather friends.
Not a Trump supporter.
And I can sing and enjoy singing with others.
Oh yeah, the profile picture was taken this year.
I have been around boats all my life. I am from Bermuda. I have sailed in Panama and am sailing in San Diego. Hope to do the Baja Ha Ha this fall. I hope to find a boat that is willing to take me on, teach me.
