looking for the sea

My Name is Maleko, I am 28 and am looking for a way into the world of sailing. I would like to hop ship out of San Diego headed south. I am incredibly hard working and very personable, If anyone knows of anything your input would be very welcome. Thanks everyone...

jrd22 will become famous soon enough
Do you have any sailing experience? If not then I would advise you to do some crewing on local boats. You will have a much better chance of getting a berth on an offshore trip if you know the basics. Good luck.

It would also help if you said what other skills you have that make you valuable as crew. Can you fix/troubleshoot electrical, diesel, mechanical, rigging, plumbing problems? Are you certified in advanced first aid, CPR or as a Wilderness First Responder/EMT? Can you stand a nightwatch? Do you know how to plot a course, read a chart, use a handbearing compass?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
