Long-term Cruising Situation Wanted

Happy 2020!

It has been a dream of mine for quite a while to find a kind, knowledgeable Captain and join him as crew for cruising adventures whether paid or unpaid. I grew up lake sailing in the Northeast of the US, primarily as a camp counselor in Vermont. During my Jr. year of college in Spain, I lived and sailed on a wooden sailboat (25 ft.) around the Mediterranean for a month with French hippies. I got a taste of being part of an international sailing community and had some amazing (and even scary) experiences. Since then I have lived and worked on various sailboats in the US and Fiji. I don't mind "grunt work", having volunteered at the South Street Seaport in NYC for winter maintenance on their antique schooners & for "Friendship of Salem" ~ a tallship based MA. I've had a very "off the beaten path" kind of life so far and look forward to the new adventures awaiting me! I'm a keen maritime student, responsible, playful, affectionate, humorous, creative, and very organized. I treat others as I would like to be treated ~ with warmth, kindness and respect. I speak my mind, follow my heart and am always trying to find ways to make life more expansive, fulfilling and FUN! I'm a bit of a Bohemian (raised as an artsy child of the 60's & 70's), a bit glam (Mom was a singer in B'way musicals), and a bit of a tomboy too (volunteered for a month at a remote Dog Sledding camp in Alaska & helped care for 56 Sled Dogs.) I'm very social (but appreciate "quiet time"), a creative cook & excellent provisioner (enjoy drinking wine and the occasional cocktail), speak Spanish, some French/Italian, LOVE nature & animals, swimming in the ocean, foreign languages & cultures, all sorts of music & art, comedy (raised on Monty Python), and contemplating the awe-inspiring mysteries of the universe. The through-line in my life has been living and working as an ESL (English) Teacher in The US, Spain, South Korea, Jordan, Italy, Argentina and Russia. I have also spent a lot of time in Alaska ~ a place which has forever changed my life. My professional background includes sales/marketing/promotions, design, film/theater production, artist's representation and adventure travel. If you have a chartering biz or would like to start one, I am well-suited to help with that. I hope to hear from you soon!
