I have quitted my job to travel the world, experience a different lifestyle away from the crowds and busy rulled by money places. I wanted to see the world and know different cultures. I have always wanted to come to the Caribbean so I bought a one way ticket here and have been exploring the islands.
Earlier this year I stepped on a boat for the first time to go sailing in Croatia with some friends. Then, I came to the Caribbean and here I have been on 3 boats so far, working as crew in exchange for the opportunity to live aboard and learn more about sailing.
The longer I spend on boats the more I enjoy sailing and the quietness of the life aboard, sailing at sunrise/sunset, being on the anchor in some beautiful remote place, and being out there with no one around, just the sea and the sea creatures.
Crossing from Dominica to Bonaire we did 450nm during 4 days, so I got some experience with night watches and navigation, and I am happy to cook and clean and do general maintenance of the boat.
Not much experience with sailing so bare that in mind, but wanting to learn. (Little by little, each experience you learn new things) Ultimately I would like to cross the Pacific so defo need those sea miles and experience.
I live a simple life, love nature and remote places. No time limit or set destination, just go where life takes me.
I am not a party person, more the quiet type, some would consider that boring and might not fit your crewing "needs".
I am looking for a honest boat which is looking for crew, no romance.
Let's go sailing!
