I am a self employed 33 year old college grad from New Jersey with a fair amount of sailing experience. I spent many a summer weekend of my youth on a 27'' Bristol. In ''97 I spent 3 months crewing on a 36'' Hans Christian which included a crossing from Bermuda to the Lesser Antilles, during which we experienced 40 knot winds and 20'' seas. We lost steering and were forced to employ a sea anchor during the storm. Needless to say it got hairy. When the voyage was over I realized that despite the various adversity offered by the sea, my passion for sailing had increased rather than decrease. I have been able to scratch this itch since with the occasional bareboat charter in the BVI and Maine but it''s really not enough. I have a lot to learn and the excellent opportunity you present is more than enough to force me to pick up roots. I look forward to your response.
