what experience do I have to have??

My first sailboat was an Odat 23 Pop Top.

I have been sailing for over twenty five years in Long Island Sound with my wife. I did all of the sailing.

We chartered with the Moorings this past October (our first time). I filled out the resume based on my experience and also my certificates and usage of all the electronics. When you sit back and look at this you may think that this was someone else''s resume.

Be honest and when you get there they will show most of the locations on board and in a day you will think your sailing your own boat.

It seems that you have all the qualifications necessary. JUST BE CAUTIOUS and ENJOY YOURSELF!

You won''t be sailing at night and make sure that you are at anchor before dark. There are no lights to guide you through the area. You notice no traffic at night through the Drake Channel.

P.S. I don''t know if the Moorings didn''t give me a hard time because we just bought a Moorings 494 or they took my resume as it looked.
