svWildline: Oh boy....I hate writing these things. It's like Tinder for my boat!
I've been working abroad for 11 years in international schools around the world and have decided to take two years off to sail the world. My sailing experience: I've been sailing since I was a child and have worked as a sailing instructor, a sail maker for North Sails, and an outdoor education leader for students. I will be setting sail from Brisbane in late June and heading to the South Pacific for 3-6 months. After that I plan on heading to Asia and then....who knows?
I'm looking for someone who is prepared to come with a positive and fun attitude. Sailing is full of challenges, and I love being around people who look at a tough job (sanding a boat bottom, cleaning the head, restocking supplies) and say, "Well, this is going to be tough but it's gotta get done!" Turn on some Stones and git'r done!
I'm pretty flexible with sailing experience. I just finished sailing my boat 1000nm with a guy who had less than a 100nm experience but he LOVED to learn and was willing to work hard and have fun.
UPDATE: The response to this has been humbling and overwhelming. I'm still looking for the right people to join me...but it doesn't have to be from June 2016. I will be sailing for two years and will need crew to come join here and there. Maybe it will be for two weeks; maybe for four months. I'm flexible if you are. If you are interested, please write me here and tell me why you would be a good fit for this journey. I'm not really worried about sailing experience (although it is certainly valued) because I can teach you everything you need to know. I'm looking for an attitude and personality fit.
