LittleWanderer24: Hiya,

About me- I love pretty much anything to do with the ocean :) I'm pretty outdoorsy, I love to kayak, paddle board, snorkel etc, and for the past year I've been living opposite Cottesloe beach, Western Australia.

I love photography, travel, road trips and meeting new people.

I'm really just looking for an opportunity to jump on board with a crew, to get some more life experience and enjoy the ride ! I'm happy with anything from helping out as a nanny, to helping with the cooking/cleaning, or to just help out with sailing. I grew up sailing competitively so I've got alittle experience on yachts. I'm ultimately looking to join up with a crew towards the beginning of next year, so let me know if you might have something :)



Hostess and Skipper couple

Skipperhostesscouple: Hi there!

I'm a young 38 year old British girl who sailed across the Atlantic with the ARC in Nov. 16. I have since been first mate / hostess in the Caribbean on a Hanse 505, with my partner who is an experienced Skipper. His username on Crewbay is "Andybrock"
I'm now back in the UK and am looking for paid hostess / 1st mate / nanny and Skipper opportunities for both myself and my partner. We are open to locations worldwide.

We are a fun, laid back and very friendly couple who really enjoy what we do, which is being on the water, whilst making sure we are doing a great job on the boat allowing our guests (or owners) to enjoy the time they are on it. We have some fantastic references from past guests - just ask!

Before sailing I worked as a nanny and I love being with and looking after children. I would therefore also be able to help out in this area too if required!

I am a great hostess (who is very clean and loves cooking and baking) and a good 1st mate, working well with my Skipper partner - we are a great team!!

olive22: Hello!!

After leaving everything behind 3 years ago to travel the world, I'm now ready to travel by sea! This has always been my dream! Although I have only spent recreational time on the water, I am eager to begin my new life on a sailboat!

I am looking for paid work or an exchange of food/lodging for work.

As a nanny, registered nurse, English teacher, gardener, vipassana meditator, painter, chef, dancer, and world traveler- there's not much I haven't done! But more importantly, I love to share space with friends and connect in meaningful ways! I love working together in sometimes difficult situations to create harmony!

Can't wait to set sail!!

Nova Scotia Kerry

Nova Scotia Kerry: A few years ago I had the opportunity to join the small crew of a 98' private yacht as the cook.
It was my first time sailing and now I have the bug.
We left from Nova Scotia Canada mid Nov and sailed to Bermuda and after having a few days to get fuel and water we headed to Freeport Bahamas where my crew departed for the holidays while I stayed aboard with the first mate to care for the ship.
Although I have no professional experience as a chef, I do know my way around the galley and everyone enjoyed my meals. They consisted of both planned and unplanned.
I have no children myself but I grew up in a small town surrounded by a ton of family where I was the "best babysitter ever!" because I love children of all ages and they relate to me because I am short :)
I've spend most of my adult life living in Toronto Canada where I worked as an independent contractor in the film business as an accountant so I am professional and bondable. There was a time I took time from behind the desk to train as a vet assistant while working for a large animal hospital also in Toronto.
To add to my résumé, I owned and operated a cleaning company in western Canada where I not only cleaned private homes and businesses I also house/pet sat for many clients to which I've maintained friendships and references.

Thank you for taking the time to read my little bio and if you have further questions do not hesitate to contact me.

Here is a little video of me being a hot mess in the galley somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle. 😜

Heidi_and_Chris: My name is Heidi and I'm student. But at the moment i'm traveling together with my partner Christoph through South America during more than 1 jear. Currently we are in Peru and would like to go to Costa Rica and then further to Cuba. Therefore we are looking for an opporttunity to work and travel on a ship. Christoph is a graduates motorcycle-mechanic and talented with all kind of mechanics. I'm open to every kind of work.

There are several reasons why we would like to help out on a ship. Like our whole jurney it will open our horizon, at the same time it will be a new challange. We will meet new, interesting travelers and are looking vorward to exchange all the great storrys. But moast importatnt to me is the fact that traveling by boat is a intense and ecologically correct way of traveling.

We are looking forward to your message.
Cheers, Christoph and Heidi
