Have a sailboat in Ft Lauderdale?

My wife and I moved to Ft Lauderdale a year ago. We have completed our training through ASA 104 (Bareboat Chartering) and have chartered in South Florida and the British Virgin Islands. We are looking for a local with a sailboat that would consider letting us take it out for daysails in exchange for helping with the bills. Is anyone interested or know someone who might be?

Excited to be joining the SailNet community. I admire the way you all help each other out.

Re: Have a sailboat in Ft Lauderdale?

Welcome aboard!!! Good luck with you plan to build sailing experience. It sounds like a fair tradeoff.

A couple other things that might work for you. Make it known you are available as crew. In fact, building a rep as dependable crew might be a stepping stone to getting someone to trust you with their boat.

Let the local yacht club know you are avaible to crew at the weekly beer can races. Members are usually looking for crews. This will give you valuable on boat experience. You will learn boat handling. First by watching and then by doing. The connections you make should help you find more boats to crew on or make sharing arrangements.

Again, good luck!!!
