I have not yet, nor am I connected to any vessel which will soon cross big water...but
the doing of it calls to me.
In case you still, or will , seek crew
I am writing in search of a crew position.
I have been ashore for sometime now...
My wind born experience includes:
CIRCI, sloop, 4 months-2000 nautical 1991 (USVI-Chesapeake)
US BRIG NIAGARA, 3 months, summer 1994 ( Great Lakes)
LA Maritime Institute, writer editor training manual, 1995
SEAL PUP, 24ft sloop, 18mos, live aboard (San Pedro, CA)
various flotsam crew, various local regatta (CA, HI, Lake Superior, Chesapeake)
PICTON CASTLE, Barque, 2 months, autumn 1999 (Nova Scotia - Boston)
I can handle the galley, like line and rig work, can scrape, paint, swab. I am a mature woman, steady worker, practical sailor. I have been a Water Safety Instructor for 20 years and am SCUBA Certified. I paint in oil, sculpt whatever and have a deep commitment to clean water and children.
How I would love to be back on the water in the wind; to keep my hands busy doing what''s needful for the ship; wondering at the lift in the filling of the sail,...
Your list would add substance to the visioning. Thank you for sharing.
