Skipper (if you come for a ride on my harbour ferry), crew (if I come on your yacht).
Owned a (very) small sloop and sailed extensively in the Gulf Islands. Across the Straight a few times in larger boats and as far as Ucluelet. Have been boatless now for too long. Getting rusty and restless. VHF, SVOP, Basic First Aid (marine), CYA coastal cruising.
Casual sailing in pleasant company. Overnight trips anytime; long-range passages in the off season. Like to learn GPS navigation but won't ditch my dividers and parallel rules quite yet.
OK, ah wuz invited to this sale. What kinda sale I ask. A boat sale they sed. So they put me behind this big steerin' wheel and sed to hold a strait coarse. 'xept I cudn't see nuttin' cuz o' them bed sheets flappin' in the wind...
