I’m a new sailor and boat owner and I’m looking for people to sail with in order to gain experience and have some fun, starting in April of this year.

I’ve completed my ASA 101/103 certification and have been out several times as skipper. I’ve loved every minute of sailing so far and want to get out there as much as possible. Because I have the luxury of setting my own work schedule, I can pick one or two sailing days a week between Friday-Monday with a fair bit of predictability.

The boat is Walrus, a 2013 Beneteau Oceanis 37.

I’m definitely not looking to do anything terribly ambitious for a while, although my hope is to eventually take some multi-day trips after gaining a bunch of experience and completing ASA 104/105/106 (scheduled for summer). In the meantime, I’m just looking to go out on the Bay and on the ocean beyond Point Loma for 3-5 hours per trip.

I’ll buy sandwiches and drinks for everyone… you bring anything else you might think you want.

If you’re up for some basic sailing then drop me a private message, send a note to my Yahoo.com email (name sandiegowalrus), or reply to this post with an email address or other contact info (which could have the added benefit of getting you on the radar of other potential skippers in the San Diego area as well).

We can sync schedules and set up sailing dates in April/May/June and beyond. In a perfect world I would end up with a list of quality people to sail with… and you would have a reliable/predictable skipper and boat for when you want to go out sailing.

happykatsu,
I live in San Diego and would be interested in crewing on your boat. I have been sailing off & on since the 70s. Yes - old fart. Not looking to do any Transpac racing but love to get out on the water.

Hello:

I am responding to your search for crew for sailing in the ****. I live in OR, but we get down to SD periodically and I would be interested in crewing for you if the opportunity arises. I'm an old fart, but I have about 50 yrs of sailing/boating experience, still at it in OR. Most of my experience was gained on the East Coast on Buzzards Bay which is well known for very nasty conditions. I have about 3000 miles of blue water experience racing and deliveries. As they say in MA, I'm a wicked pissah sail trimmah. Let me know if there's any interest.

Cheers,

Scott

Congrats on the boat! I sailed a Beneteau First 30 I was thinking about in San Diego Harbor. What an awesome place to sail! I have not been sailing long, but would be more than happy to go for sails in San Diego. I am in Newport Beach just up the road, but wouldnt mind coming down. Or maybe you may want to sail up?

Scott and John: Yes, interested, email me at sandiegowalrus *at* yahoo.com. I tried to PM you but apparently can't until my post count is a little higher.

I'm in San Diego and I've also completed my ASA 101/103. It's been about a year since I did my certification and I've been itching to get sailing again. I can't PM you because I'm a new member here, but please let me know if you are still looking for people.

Also, there is a meet-up group in SD called Sailing San Diego. It looks like there are quite a few people, boats, and events going on with that group, although I haven't had a chance to go out with them yet. Might be worth checking out...

Matt - write me at sandiegowalrus <at> yahoo.com if you're still interested; am starting to fill out calendar for April/May sailing days. Also, I did check out Sailing San Diego meet-up and it looks interesting. I may try it at some point. I'm more looking to create a group of "regulars" but the meet-up might be a good way to jump-start that process. Thanks for suggesting.

Coolbreeze - Definitely still interested. Boat wasn't in La Paz to my knowledge (was on a trailer from Marion SC where it was built and then sat with dealer for a short while).

I know that this is an old thread, but I'm on vacation in Coronado. I have several years experience and would love to get some time on a boat this week. I'm in Coronado till 06/15/2015

hi :) I just moved on a boat for the summer and am interested in learning to sail. I've been out on the water quite a bit, but don't have much 'formal training' in sailing. I am a quick learner and super friendly. shoot me an e-mail if you're interested. thanx!

Hi….you probably have a regular crew by now but I would like to throw my hat into the mix never the less. I am retired and have owned three sailing vessels in the past ….the last was a 30 ft Erickson and really miss the experience. I live 30 miles north of San Diego and am available any day or hour. My phone is 760-744-7889 Thanks
