yet more adventures to share
Crew wanted: Amateur crew

mistress: Looking for crew to share further adventures...
Since August 2013 I have sailed Mistress up and down the eastern Caribbean between Saint Martin and Trinidad. We´ve visted Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Barts, Montserrat, Guadeloupe (including three of it´s own islands), Dominica, Martinique, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent (plus much of the Grenadines), Grenada and Tobago. Accompanying me at various times have been my ex partner, Thomas, Susanne, Vee, Marion, Allan, Laura, Michael, Pia, Maria, Marina, Meg, Renie and others who´ve hitched a ride.
I am now in Trinidad for the second time and from here, who knows? Guyana, Venezuela, or just head up island again - I do not know. Whatever I choose to do, I’d rather have some crew/travel companions before I move on again so I’ve posted some new adverts.
You don’t need sailing experience to join the boat but ideally you will enjoy sailing and not get seasick!
Please note - I’m seeking like-minded crew and travel companions for ongoing adventures rather than island hoppers simply looking for passage from A to B.
If you are a couple, sorry, I don't think I can handle that right now (recently broke up).
I don´t care about your age, gender, sexuality, race or nationality but you must have valid passport etc to travel and be able to communicate well in spoken English.
If you speak other languages, especially French or Spanish then that´s a huge bonus.
You should work well as part of a team; be good humoured; tolerant; considerate and ideally without too much baggage as it’s not huge boat!
I am most interested in compatibility.
I’m vegetarian. Strictly speaking you don’t need to be but food onboard will be and there’ll be no fishing.
I’m on a low budget and ideally you’d be operating at a similar level. You need to be able to cover your share of food, drink, fuel, cooking gas, consumables and shore based travel and activities. That seems to amount to10US$ to 15US$ per day. Achieving this mean not eating out at restaurants every day or hanging out in bars all night. On shore you should be at ease with walking, hitching or taking buses rather than hoping in a taxi everywhere. Also, don’t expect the convenience and comfort of marinas - we’ll be at anchor.
If you are interested in joining Mistress (either now or in the future), please write an email telling me about you, your motives, hopes, expectations, experiences and timeframes. I’m not going to pick crew based on one line messages. If you have online profiles (such as couchsurfing or facebook), please include links.
If you’ve written before (perhaps via findacrew, crewbay or some other web based system) and not received a reply then feel free to email again.
Don´t hesitate to ask questions but please don´t ask if I am still looking for crew (if I am still sailing then I am still interested in crew).
