Hi all! I''m a 21 year old female--just out of college. Like many of my peers, I have no clue where my life is leading me. I want to try my hand at sailing to see where the wind blows me (quite literally)! I got a license for up to 25'' boats last summer but haven''t practiced since then. What I''d like to do is find a job on a boat somewhere to learn the ropes. Any ideas on how to do so? I live in the Annapolis area. Thanks for any insights you might have!

You are little late to find a job sailing on boats as most of the sailing schools staff up in the spring. There are quite a few sailing schools in the area that you can try. Just look in the yellow pages.

You should also be able to get aboard racing sailboats in the wednesday, thurday and friday night race series in and around Annapolis. I will often take folks daysailing with me on my boat. If you are interested in that please email me with your email address. <burr.halpern@annapolis.net>

Good luck,

Ahoy ye damsel in distress, dis here be one lonely Pirate who can show you some rope tricks dat is too much for de books. As fer a job I be thinking ye can start out at de job of Cabin boy on me vessel, so long as ye is got some masculine tendendices in ye. Advancement to seamem ,first mate,and officer all require the satisifactory completion of hands on skill an nerve testing. Aye dat piece of paper ye got don''t mean nuttin. De sea will make ye a sailor. Pirate of Pine Island
