Nearly Competent Sailor

Aloha all,

My name's Sanjay, and I'm stoked to find a forum with a wealth of information on sailing/boats/gear. I'm 21, and I have been sailing sunfish/lasers/420's/JY's/FJ's/ Blue Jays-->(worst boat ever) for ten years.
Just last summer I earned US Sailing Level 1 cert, and taught a class to inner-city kids on the long island sound.
I also recently purchased a hobie 16, and after 6 months of use, I managed to destroy it and get rescued by the coasties, after a turtling in a squall.

I enjoy racing on my friends Newport 30 out of the Ala Wai, and im transitioning myself into bigger boats, with the intention to do some transpac cruising in the near future.

I am currently working on my 50 ton license, and Im always looking for crew opportunities.

Welcome to the board!

Sounds like you've got some nice sailing under your belt, and had quite a day on the Hobie!

it was the uneasy, "this whole situation is cocked up" kind of laughter.
