jballss84 : I have a couple of days a week that I would like to put to good use and gain some sailing experience. I have zero experience with sailing but I am enormously keen to learn and pick things up really quickly when shown I do have common sense .

I can easily travel to parts of the South West and I live in Cornwall. Although I have zero sailing experience, I've spent lots of time in the sea on the coast surfing and kayaking.

I'd love to join a crew one day once I gain more experience and see new (warmer) places.

RobertJamesDouglas: Ahoy there! I'm Robert I'm from Dorset, England and i was never one for writing bios for myself but here we go...

As i write this Im currently in the Dominican Republic. I have just finished directing and filming a documentary in Haiti. My plan is to get to Cuba or mainland central or South America.

I recently sailed down west Europe onto north west Africa with a solo dutch sailor. For 4 weeks. I work as a in water surf photographer on a surf charter in East Indonesia. I have £7000 worth of HD camera equipment including a 4K aerial drone and professional in water photography equipment!

So in the last year i have been managing a surf camp on the west coast of Sri Lanka for half a year. Sorry for being negative as you read this but you want to know who i am? I was moving on to manage another surf camp in the Philippines but the day i landed in Manila i get the tragic new my best friend had passed away in a surfing accident in Indonesia. So i packed my bags and booked the first flight back to England for his funeral. it was a long process, and in that time i came up with idea to do a charity bike ride in Camerons name. So the day after the funeral me and 3 friends cycled from Brighton Camerons home town to his second home and work place Sagres in Portugal where i also live and work half the year. We wilded camped for the 2,500km it was great and we also raised £5500 to build a clean water system in Kenya for a non profit charity i do a lot of work for called Sadhana Forest.

I love to Adventure its in my blood. its all i know and its all i have been doing for the last 6 years now. wouldnt change it for the world :)

so a bit more about myself.... sorry if i go on, just skip it

I worked as a beach lifeguard for the RNLI on the busy Bournemouth beach. I studied watersports and outdoor education in Poole. I have been traveling around Asia, Europe, North Africa and The Americas for the last 6 years. I recently did a solo trek up to Everest base camp without a sherpa, guide or Aircraft. 30 days of just me and the Himalayas.. plus a bit of altitude sickness at 18,500ft.
I recently also did an epic 2000 mile motorcycle tour around Sri Lanka. I now spend half of the year in Portugal where the worlds Largest waves break in the european winter. i spend my time in Portugal shooting promotional videos for surf camps and shooting Surf photography for local professional surfers.

i spend a lot of my time in Indonesia surfing some of the worlds finest waves, Im also starting to get into diving when i have the money and the time, while in central Asia I spend my time on jungle treks in Cambodia and Thailand, I bought a motorbike and crossed 2000miles of beautiful Indonesia. to West paupua. Well thats a little about my last years. Sorry if i went on a bit.

My work:

I have been traveling and making a living off my Photography and Videography work. Im a self-taught photographer. whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel subjects. My images are punctuated by energized landscapes and moments of bliss, by adventure seeking and the lifestyle that ensues, by movement and intuitive light-working capabilities. With the ocean as my main muse, i have consistently captured this subject in timeless and expansive photographic impressions, utilizing the tool of surfing to approach the oceanís intricate personality and then extending out to include the human personalities that draw meaning from this same source. I use professional in water photography/videogrpahy equipment. Also i have a Super HD professional flying arial camera that i control from the ground.

it would be great to capture the ocean and general boat life with my equipement. and also great memories for you to keep for yourself.

My idea:

it would be great to come on your boat and learn how to sail properly. Help out doing any tasks needed. Please get in contact with me this is an incredible opportunity for us all. Thanks for reading. Robert Douglas

What I Know About Sailing

What do I know about sailing? Truthfully, nothing (although I have planned on getting a few certifications within the month). I have only been aboard a sailboat twice in my life and did little learning of it's operation and handling while aboard. What I do know is that I have a passion for the ocean. The freedom men and women with sailing skills have is something that I have always dreamed of. Jack Sparrow says it perfectly: "Wherever we want to go, we go. That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and hull and a deck and sails. That's what a ship needs. But what a ship freedom." I have a few months until I have to return home to start school but I am willing and able to devote all of that time to being a valuable and enthusiastic shipmate.

Mani2312: I'm 26 years old and my adult career has consisted of onshore customer service based roles. I'm looking to start sailing. It's something I've thought about for a long time and thinking about it excites me. I have not had much experience in sailing but I have an insatiable thirst for adventure and want work on the seas whether I can apply my employment experience or do something completely new.
