Carissasunshine: Aloha,
My name is Carissa, I just finished a sailing venture from South Island, New Zealand to Fiji. It was a 34 day voyage on a 3 masted schooner, with 13 crew. During this journey I was a watch leader and cook.
Before the trip I lived and worked on the boat for 5 months doing repairs, and getting the boat ready for its winter cruise.
Before this, I lived in Hawaii and had a 18' (4M) Hobie Cat, that I learned how to sail on and built a super adobe house.
I knew this couple that would argue if it was best to learn how to sail on a big boat or smaller one.
I was able to learn about sailing with the Hobie Cat, it gets you very personal with the ocean and wind, and the 3 masted schooner taught me a lot about the crew dynamics and responsibilities

I am going to sail around the world, I have found my home in the deep blue Pacific, it's only a matter of time before I find it in the other oceans/seas.

Hannah.langley: I am determined to travel the world but money is often an issue.. Thats why i would love to become a crew member to travel with the safety of a boat, the friendship of a crew and the amazing experience of being at sea :) I am easy going and easy to live with but certainly not lazy, I am also hard working and enthusiastic. I love listening to music, dancing, wildlife watching and have a passion for habitat conservation which I think could make for some good boat chat when on long journeys!
