EszterSzentirmai: Hey,
my name is Eszter and i am not a professional sailor YET! I used to work for a Sailor Club and i enjoyed sailing but only as a hobby. I am eager to learn, but you should know that I might be too weak (24 years old woman) for tough physical work. At the moment I run a beekeeping project in orphanages in Africa, but later I would like to move to "the ocean" with my Belgian partner (29 years old man) who i smy fellow traveler. I imagine you need unskilled staff as well to clean, prepare food, as a nanny (what i used to be) or for any general help. If it is so, do not hesitate to contact us!

Mia*: Hello, the last 3 years I was traveling as a backpacker through Central America, California and Asia most of the time going by bus and staying in hostels. As much I liked it, I was always thinking how nice it would be to make the trip on a sailing boat and thinking back, the best time in the last 3 years traveling was the time I had the possibility to spend it on a boat.
So this time I came to Thailand looking for an opportunity to learn sailing (if possible on a Catamaran) and as much as possible about boats, navigation, engines and fixing things. I am really good with learning by doing and I am getting things very quick, it would be a pleasure for me to learn as much as I can!
I am an Assistant Instructor and spent nearly 3 years on Ko Tao working as a Dive Master and Assistant Instructor and I loved the time diving and on the boat, but I was always thinking how nice it would be go with a sailing boat on places not so crowded.
I love cooking; my way of cooking is a cross over from Mediterranean and Asian Food, not so spicy but healthy and delicious with the use of fresh products and herbs whatever the season gives me to work with. I have been cooking for more people and cooking for 8 – 10 people should not be a big deal, but to be honest I never had the possibility to cook for more than 2 people on a boat kitchen.
What else you need to know: I am a Hobby Photographer, my time is definitive sunset time and I am a night person I cannot go to bed when sun goes down I love to watch the stars! I don’t get seasick until now… my sport is swimming, diving, snorkeling in warm sea water…hope sailing soon as well ;-)
I am ready for an adventure on the sea and I think Phuket is a nice base for a star to discover the sea in Asia,( I would love to sail in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines down to Australia – Queensland – and of course as a diver I would love to see the Great Barrier Reef) but I would be open to change the country! ( end of September Thailand Visa is finished ...Visarun...on a boat to Langkawi....would be great!?)

Tay: I'm a young south African who is selling up all iv worked for including a portion of a business i helped grow to pursue a dream of sailing and working at sea.
I have over the past 3 years gained over a 150 hours at sea on small craft of less than 9m and have my skipper's ticket with the south African maritime authorities.
I am a passionate free diver and spearfisherman.
After studying Nature conservation for 2 years and a 3rd year training as a field guide in limpopo south africa.I spent 2 years running a 5 star hotel as an operational manager and all my spare time in the sea.
I have since partnered with another person and been running my own business for the past 2 years to much success.
I however feel this is not the life for me and am in the process of tying up my affairs in RSA.
I should by February 2016 have multiple qualifications allowing me to work in the yachting industry and be able to leave at the convenience of a potential employer almost worldwide.

Minni: This is not an dating ad.

I'm not looking for a short or longterm relationship of any kind, so all those lovesick and sleazy sailors, please don't waste your time. I'm here to learn sailing so I can get a boat of my own in the future. If your only motivation in life is to drift and booze around, we likely don't have very much in common either. But if you are planning to do something meaningful and exciting, aka challenging adventure or something that actually benefits the nature, contact me. In return I promise you a committed crew member who genuinely wants to learn to become a kick-ass sailor.

I sail, I kayak, I dive, I surf (badly). I've done a sailing level 1 (equivalent of Competent crew) in Finland and some sailing in England. At the moment I live in London. Special skills: marketing, filming & documentary making. Especially interested in offers for two people, my partner is an experienced deckhand with 5000 nm.

Later, gator.
