Looking for more sailing experience and adventures, as well as discovering new cultures, places and of course, finding new friends!
Currently working as an engineer, but is planning to take some time off the coming winter. Hopefully min 3 month at warmer latitudes.

Jimmy82: I am a 34 y.o. italian/british living on a beautiful mediterranean island, Sardinia.

thanks to crewbay I already had many enjoyable sailing experiences around the mediterranean, biscay and the canary islands.
I enjoy every part of sailing and confident in all maneuvers (I hold the italian skippering licence and the rya coastal skipper practical)
I am looking for fun, enjoyable sailing with with nice and happy people who share the love for sea, nature, sailing and visiting places from a "local" perspective rather than just being a tourist.

My last 3 experiences:

Oct-Nov'16 -on a beautiful hallberg-rassy54- 1.300NM from Turkey to Spain. first 2 weeks 3 people on board, last 2 weeks just me and the captain. We went island hopping in south greece, sicily, sardinia and last few days around barcelona to find the best marina to leave the boat for the winter.

April '16 1 week sailing (250nm) on the biscay coast (atlantic - west france) on a 33ft Elan just me and the owner (an Oxford research professor), only day sailing so I had the chance to get used with scheduling departures/arrivals according to tides so to be able to come in/out marinas.

Nov'15 cruise/delivery (6 weeks) 1.500NM from Italy to Tenerife on a 43ft Elan. 2-handed first 3 weeks then joined by a 3rd crew member. Sailing 3/4 days legs between marinas to fill up water, ...etc. Absolutely loved it, (I love sailing at night till the sun rises, especially coastal) The owner was so welcoming and easygoing and it didn't take long to became good friends and still keep in touch.

I enjoy marina hopping but also love night sailing.
I am available to crew/deliver in autumn, winter,spring (I work for the holiday lettings industry during the summer).
between May and October I can offer 2/3 days local knowledge around Sardinia and Corsica.

I am passionate about sailing, kitesurfing, surfing and kayaking. I have good maintenance skills - I have restored myself my little diesel engine boat (the engine was completely derelict) and I am a good Italian cook. (best onshore, but i can organize for some good simple food while on passage too).

Can reach various places around the world.
Looking forwards to have fun, meeting new friends and visiting new places! (and of course sail .-)

Vega: I am looking for a position as deckhand, delivery or racing crew on a classic sailing vessel where I can include my profound traditional sailing skills. Those I required being Captain of Vega for the last 5 years doing my own charter business ( and running the boat alone. I got trained sailing, seamanship and maintenance from my father, the original owner of Vega over 50 years. It is the place where I spent my youth and crewed as a young adult for many years. The future of Vega is not clear, mine will be the way to be a captain.
I am willing to start from scratch and learn from others, as I am aware of the different operating and maneuvering of each sailing yacht. Vega is operated completely manual without any electronic assistance apart from a handheld GPS. I would also be very interested in ocean racing crossing the roaring forties.

I adore the sea, I live for pefect sailing maneuvers without engin until anchoring, I am an explorer and a good sailor.

rumkommen: I am Albi and I have been hitchhiking through Europe for the past 19 months. To extend my travels further south-west, I managed to become a crew member on a sailboat from Gibraltar to Tenerife. We were lucky with the weather and I enjoyed doing night watches for the first time and cooking aboard! After this amazing experience, I'd like to go further to Latin America.

olgahelena: Hi,
My name is Olga and I'm 23 y.o. from Poland.

After graduation in July I've decided to take gap year to sail and travel.
I'm positive, open-minded person, easy-going, but hard working.

I've been sailing since I was 7 y.o., started with optimist and sailing with my parents.
I have sailed more than 5000 nm (including ocean experience). I mostly sailed on yachts around 39 ft but I have also experience with sailing on bigger ones (up to 128 ft long). I've crossed Atlantic Ocean in November (Gran Canaria to Martinique).

On board I can do antything: cook, clean, paint, keep the night watch on my own, take care of kids... I'm quick learner as well. I'm competent crew, reliable and service-minded.

I love outdoor activities and non-fiction books.
If you want to meet me, let me know. I'm in Panama City but I can travel to Colon as well.
