Well.... I'd say I was still looking, but certainly not expecting.
One of my crew from the previous year's sail south brought her best friend to meet her "captain", when I was back up in Providence, RI. The rest is history.
Honestly though, I sailed north because the chances of meeting someone were greater in the states than on any island in the Caribbean.
Internet adds brought out the weirdos, that's for sure. However, spontaneity seems not to be in the lexicon of today's single women.
I miss the days when there were 20 people walking the docks wherever we were, looking to go sailing. Begging to go sailing!
