I would love to be able to crew in this word championship, I don’t need any pay or any accommodations since I am local and I can provide a fair amount of local knowledge, I know this waters very well, and I am very used to sailing in this heavy wind, I sail at least 3 times per week in heavy conditions.Please let me know if you need any further information about myself or my sailing skills. Thank you and I hope to be able to get on a boat.
