Re: Mast Supports for Erie Canal travel

Hi Glenn,

My name is Greg Simmons, living in Greece, NY. I've fallen victim to the sailing bug several years ago and have finally gotten to the point where I need to start feeding my passion.
In addition to all of the reading and studying I've been doing I want to start connecting to local skippers so I can learn the tried and true method via hands on.

I would like to offer my time to help with preparing your boat for this season and crewing if you ever need company or an extra set of hands. I'm 43, married, working full time and pretty involved with my church. However, after family, church and work, I can see myself throwing everything else into sailing.

I can swim, a former athlete and in great health. However, I am losing the extra baggage of rice and beans that my Puerto Rican wife has blessed me with (29lbs lost so far).
If there is interest, perhaps we can grab a coffee and discuss.

Many thanks for your consideration.

Gregory Simmons
PS: I would have private messaged you but I just joined Sailnet and don't have enough posts to do a PM.

Re: Mast Supports for Erie Canal travel

Welcome Greg. Glad to hear you've fallen for the sport. However, I don't think you're going to hear back from Glenn. His post was made nearly 4 years ago (see date in upper left corner of each post) and his profile suggests he hasn't signed on since late 2012.

Still, keep poking around. You'll eventually find what your looking for.
