Marina del Rey, CAUSA
Hometown: Long Beach
February 10, 2013
Hello, I love being outdoors and taught sailing for 3 years in college and joined the first sailboat charter club in Marnia del Rey. Taught sailing professionally. I love to leave the dock & anchor for brunch so we can enjoy the view then go sailing.
I taught sailing at Long Beach City College on Coronado 15's and 30 foot Shields collegiate racing boat. At Marina Sailing for a summer I inspected boats after charter, taught sailing and checked out charter skippers on Cataline 27, 28, 30, 34, 36, 42, Columbia 22, 28, Ericson 27, 35, Hunter 30 and boats I forget. Have sailed some in a few races including crewing Newport to Ensinada. I thought instructors made sailing lessons more difficult than necessary with my knowledge of semantics and simplified the lessons to be easy to understand. My sailing goal is to buy a sailboat to go cruising in. After reading Yankee Sails Across Europe I want to explore some of the 3,000 miles of European navigation rivers and canals. This may require a monohull to be narrow to fit all older canals so an Irwin 38 may be selected. But I love the speed possible in multihulls. Some boats can do 20 knnots without being 80 feet long. Id love to be on a 100' plus boat doing 30 knots.
I'd like to meet people, talk and have fun together. And sometimes offer courses on anchoring locally at Catalina, Santa Cruz Island or other islands. I prefer sailing to Santa Cruz in summer to avoid the zoo of Catalina. But found anchoring at Catalina Monday-Sat or Sunday can be nice.
Thanks! I have a stress fracture myself that has been acting up. I was hoping it was healed after 6 months of rest, but it doesn't seem like it :/
It looks like I'll be out for a couple more months....
Wow. I'm so sorry pal. I only now saw your post on my wall. I'm just now starting to really get into meetup. My apologies!
Hi Charles! Thanks for the offer way back in May, I just now noticed that I had messages on my profile. I took some time off of VB thanks to a tibial stress fracture, but I want to get back into the game soon. Still want to practice some set, bump and spike drills? Cheers and happy Thanksgiving!!
Thank you for your message. I moved to Montana but might be back in LA sometime next year. Maybe I'll see you then.
Hi charles! Just got your message, thanks for the info and invites! Let me know when the next events are coming up. I love the water and everything to do with the outdoors, and meeting new people. See you soon!
I don't have the balls just the lines
I may not be there tomorrow either
Who is hosting?
Hi Charles thanks very much for the offer, I have tried volley ball but I have delicate wrists and find it too painful to play. I prefer to keep to my ski and power walking on beaches. I am open to other low impact fitness activities, ciao for now Amira
Hi, thank you for the invite. I wish I could come but I unfortunately work during those hours. I will keep it in mind if I ever can.
I just got your message. I know I really want to come to the beach and have some fun learning/ doing some sand volleyball drills and meeting having fun hanging with others at the same time. I'm going to plan on coming this Sunday or Saturday (what time?). My arm was/is injured & still wrapped up but better & doesn't hurt So now I'm able to play no excuse:) so hey if you can/want just let me know when again. I'll probably ride my bike. Thanks again. Hope to meet & hangout soon. Bye
Hi Charles, sorry I don't really get on the web version of this much to see your messages. Anyway I would like to come out more but right now my schedule the next few weeks is hectic. Yes bell's are great (as I am soon to be flying a 206B3) but my love has always been for Eurocopter (I have time in the AStar AS350B2 in the Grand Canyon) - I would love to make the next meet up as soon as I can. Cheers!
