Atlantic crossing from east to west
Hello out there,
My name is Helene and Im looking for an adventure at sea. I hope to join an Atlantic crossing from east to west in autumn 2022
When I'm in need of money I work as a journalist, but before I started that I have been working on ships. in 2012 I did my STCW certificate and from 2012 to 2014 I was a deck cadet on Torm oil tankers sailing anywhere from New York, Nigeria, Finland, Sudan and Cuba. In 2015 I took the coastal master certificate and in the years to follow I sailed as mate in a (very) small veteran ferry in Svendborg. I lost my interest in merchant sailing, but I still miss the sea. Though Ive been alot on ships, my experience and skills in sailing sailboats are very limited. A part from joining friends on their boats from time to time, i joined as crew on a 50 ft cruiser from el Salvador to Panama on the autumn of 2021 and from Panama city to cartagena in spring 2022.
When Im not travelling I enjoy building and creating things. I live in a community of tiny houses in a small town called Svendborg in Denmark and here I build my own house where I live. Besides fumbling with my house and my garden I like to swim in the sea, kayak, snorkel, scuba dive, cook, dumpsterdive, upcycle, party, drink cocktails and a lot of other things. I think Im pretty easy going and low maintenance, I like to meet now people and discover new places :)
