How would you describe your sailing experience? At the end of your description include a title for yourself (look at other profiles, or the about page for ideas)

"Novice" I took the basic keelboat classes at CSUS aquatic center in Sacramento and have been signed off on the Holder 20 and the Lazer. So I have been taking those boats out on the lake and now I need more challenging conditions. I recently took part 1 of the basic keelboat class at Spinnaker Sailing and plan on taking part 2 and getting the ASA certification.

What type boats have you sailed on - or dream of sailing on? What sort of sailing do you do? Cruising, racing, beercans, YRA . . . Transpac??

I have been on a large 35 foot sailboat out of Tradewinds and we sailed around Angel Island and back it was awesome. I would love to have more experience on larger boats in the bay area. I like cruising, would be willing to try racing, beercans etc as my experience increases. (dont want to be in the way !!) Willing to work hard !!!

If you are a private boat owner -- please describe your vessel in as much detail as you can.

No

Do you have any US sailing or ASA certificates? Do you bareboat charter?

Working on Basic keelboat ASA cert...

Are you disabled or have limited mobility? You'll be welcomed, but it's very important for skippers to know ahead of time to keep everyone safe while sailing (you included).

No

Hi, my name is Helen I live in Sacramento, but grew up in Ireland on the water. I miss the ocean being landlocked in the central valley. I want to spend mor time on the water, so I have been taking sailing lessons over the past 2 years.
