This listing is a Last minute host. They have let us know that they are looking for help immediately as well as at other times of the year.
  • Description


    Workaway is a great site!
    I am looking for someone to help with boat painting and household repairs. Plastering , painting, install a door,etc. Preference will be given to those that have done repair work, but I will read all messages and respond. Even if hosting doesn’t work out, I will take all sailing.
    Please be vaccinated or planning to do so.

    I have been taking people sailing for over 30 years. I might not be able to host you, but I will take you sailing if you are in the area. I still host the largest free online sailing group in the Tristate area,
    and have been on for 7 years with over 165 references.

    I take locals and travelers sailing for free in the beautiful waters of Long Island Sound. Our conversations on the boat , between the most eclectic group of people, are always interesting. I have decided to video them to show the diversity of people and ideas. I am looking for a moderator that has good English and can draw people out to express their ideas in a safe space. No acting or sailing skills are required. Message me if interested. I can take up to 4-5 others sailing. The sails usually last about four hours. We do stay for sunsets if the weather is nice.

    Public transportation to the center of New York is about an hour. The sailing season runs from June to October. Email me for more information. I also take people to museums,The Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Garden. I like growing mushrooms, photography, video production, riding motorcycles, restoring old sports cars, and horseback riding.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a born and bred New Yorker. Every year I am available to show people around NY. I have memberships to the New York Botanical Garden. I sail with mixed, eclectic groups of locals and world travelers. No two excursions are the same. Many of my 200+ guests (from other site) have said in their references, that sailing on my boat was one of their best experiences in their travels. I have been active on another hosting site since 2012 with over 165 references.
