I am a STG (Sonar Technician) in the US Navy but i have not completed training so i am not stationed on a ship yet. I am taking the test to get my basic sailing certification this weekend (06/16/11). I used to sail a bit back home on Toppers, which are little dingys which are quite fun to race. I voulenteerd on a 60ft schooner, the Jambo, which was used for diving trips and ferrying tourists to and from expensive hotels located on islands just off the kenyan coast. Jambo was the largest vessel I have ever sailed, been with a friend on a Capri 22 a couple of times and mostly toppers and Dhow’s (the boom comes across tip of the mast) back home in kenya. I would love to get more sailing experiance, im a quick learner but renting larger boats is way too expensive for someone of my paygrade. I have weekends off and am out of my Navy school at around 2.30pm every day. Be it cruising or racing, I am an able deckhand who loves to sail.
