Adventurous single mom dreams of cruising with athletic 10 year old son.
Would you help us make that dream come true?
Mom has 30+ years sailing experience: Certified Windsurfing Instructor, Olympic Yachting Staff, Savanah 1996 (anchor duties ) , Racing 20’ catamarans. Liveaboard in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, and Florida Keys. Blue water cruising: St. Thomas to Ft. Lauderdale. Inland Crusing: Intracoastal from Ft. Lauderdale to Boston. Day sail crew/snorkel tour leader, USVI. Crewed a bit on a Tornado. Loves to cook. Certified diver. Installed solar panels by myself.
My 10 year old boy is very agile. Sailed our sailing dinghy from our mooring to the dock on a daily basis to get to school in the morning. No one is better on the monkey bars than him. His father is a 3 time almost Olympic sailor on Tornados.
He is in public school right now, while I try to find flexible work as a software developer in a tough economy, but I dream of sailing.
We homeschooled for 2 years, and I would love to continue that saga, studying historical fiction as we sail through different ports.
I believe that Travel is the best education.
