Hello from California

Hello, my name is Brandon. I recently got back into sailing after a fairly long hiatus. I am taking classes at a local club called Marina sailing, and I have obtained my ASA 101 and 103. I am hoping to further my skills by getting into racing, at least thats the plan. I look forward to continuing my ASA classes, and improve my sailing skills. If anyone is looking for crew in San Diego, I'm a 23 year old eager to learn. Hope to see some of you on the water!

jackdale will become famous soon enough
Welcome Brandon

Have you had a chance to visit the local yacht clubs? Often skippers are looking crew. Bring some sailing gloves and shoes, maybe an inflatable pfd and a six pack. Do not exaggerate your qualifications and experience; listen and watch carefully. Stick around while the boat is snugged down. You might volunteer for work duties. One of my early ones was shrubbing the water line the day before a race.

Hey Brandon, welcome to sailnet;

We're in the same marina as Marina Sailing ( I've worked on a few of their boats ) Mike's a pretty good guy, you should have a good time while learning

BTW, That was one hell of a storm that came though last night, wasn't it ??

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies

Yes, we got a whole lot of the rain and man the wind was crazy. Yeah Mike is fun. To jackdale: I have not looked yet but thanks for the advice. I will be sure to check out the local clubs and see what I can find.
