Please provide a separate answer for each of the 3 questions. (a) Have you sailed before? (b) If so, as a passenger? as crew? (c) Can you skipper a sailboat?

(a) Have been out on the Bay and out the Gate frequently with this group. (b) Participated initially as a passenger, but now am nominally useful crew. Am on a learning curve. On my second trip, the learning curve was over the side of the railing as we slammed through the Potato Patch en route to the Farallones. (c) Wouldn't call myself a skipper, except when I'm in a really light-hearted mood on land.

(a) Do you own a sailboat? (b) If so, what type, and where is it berthed? (c) Do you have any sailing credentials (e.g., ASA certification)? If so, what are they?

No, I don't have any sailing credentials. And neither do I have a boat. And yet, people keep saying to me, "Whatever floats your boat!" They must know something I don't. . . .

Do you understand that before joining you must read "GENERAL INFORMATION offered by Wendy" and "NBS Photo Requirements" located at []? <--Not a live link. You must cut + paste that link to view it.

Yes. And what a dazzling page-turner it is! A veritable tour de force!

Per #3 please display on this page a clear head+neck photo that meets ALL these criteria: properly exposed, no more than 2 yrs old; shows *only you*; facing front, in focus, no shadows/glares, no sunglasses/head covering; head fills 90% of the frame.

Okay, but no guarantee for prosopagnosics.

How did you hear about this group? Please be specific and don't put just "Meetup." (ex: Google search; via another Meetup profile; Meetup email announcement; Meetup search/browsing, referral from someone in this or another Meetup group, etc.)

"They sailed away, for a year and a day, To the land where the Bong-tree grows . . . . And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon, The moon, The moon, They danced by the light of the moon."
