Back On The Water

Hi Everyone!
I am just returning to the sea after 10+ years away, although I live right next to it. I am located in Southern California (San Diego), and have owned several sailboats, lived aboard twice for a year at a time (in San Diego and Ventura), and just bought a beautiful O'Day 32' aft cabin a few months ago. It was great to get back out on the water and know that my skills and love of sailing are intact. :-)
I am going to move her up to Ventura as soon as I can (just up the coast a bit for those of you not in the area), but I am really needing a competent and experienced sailor to go with me. I want to SAIL up, not just motor and harbor-hop. This time of year, it's cold (not really, but for us...) and weather can be dicey, but I want to sail out around the Channel Islands and then in to Ventura. If anyone knows a person who could fill the bill, by all means, refer them to me. I don't trust my navigational abilities like I used to and so I would require that they have a firm grip on navigation and not just operating a GPS, which I can do.
I am moving her there because the sailing is so much better there (there are places to go and wind to go there) and to work in my branch office a day a week. I can stay aboard when I go up, so it will help with my liveaboard jones. :-)

I'm happy to be part of the sailing community again and welcome any feedback that you all might have.

Fair Winds,
Tania Davidson
(Mission Bay, San Diego, CA presently)

Welcome Back!
I'm on the wrong coast to help. I hope you find good crew, I found two sailors here that helped me bring my ketch up from Florida. If you post in the "Crew-Wanted" section, disregard the smartass replies. Let us know how it works out.
