Hiya

Hi--I joined the Sailnet online community because I shall be retiring in two years, and will have all the time I need for sailing. Until then I am looking for short hauls to get my sea legs back. I have not been at sea in a while, but voyaged on and off in various capacities on freighters for years. I have general sailing experiece. I am "Old School"--reliable, responsible, loyal. Great social skills, and excellent seaman. I am unfamiliar with contemporary navigation and electronc systems, but can read the winds, negotiate the waves; allow for the currents and respond to the helm's urging: the traditional skills of the seas are in my bones.

I will be happy to provide more information, references, etc. and am available for an interview or trial run any time--very flexible times. Give me a holla!

Looking forward to hearing from you

We are glad to have you with us.

What kind of boats have you sailed?

You might want to edit your first post a bit to camouflage your email address. Perhaps change the @ into the word "at" or something else witty.

This will make it harder for spam bots to extract your email address.

Of course, you might miss out on some great deals on Nigerian finances, but there is always risk in life.

Welcome to our Sailnet community. It's really interesting. The fact that you got your first response from a Pbzeer, who is literally on board his boat wandering aimlessly is pretty cool, I think.

Thanks--I'll figure out how to edit the message! I have sailed all sorts--nothing too big. Just crewed sloops mostly, I guess. It's been a while, but "I must go down to the sea again."And your welcome from your boat is very confirming

Wander on...fare forward traveller...

Stay safe

Richard
