Gulf crew available, SW FL

Take me sailing!!Semi-retired due to teaching position that hasn't materialized yet (moved here this fall from Lake Allatoona, GA)I have 4000 nautical miles experience as a crew for boat delivery captain: Caribbean, Gulf crossing & ICWW from TX to Port St Lucie. I can set the sails, and hold the course during my night watch. Handy in the galley too. That's the limit to my crew-with-benefits, that and knowing how to keep the peace during a long passage LOLLet's go sailing!!  See More

About Me:
I race small, one design sailboats (Laser & Snipe.) Mostly lake sailing though I have enjoyed several salt water regattas around the FL gulf and SC low country harbors. I'm happy at the helm or as the crew... either way, I cannot seem to get enough tiller time.
