Competent Crew, Part of a Team; Open to work: stew/cook, snorkel guide, masseuse, yoga teacher, homeschool teacher
Hi friends! I have crewed on various sailboats for a total of 12 months now. I have been in charge of the galley & provisioning, watched sailboats while owners were away, and competently crewed on sailboats in Panama, Belize, and throughout the Eastern Caribbean from November 2018-May 2020. I own a 22' MacGregor that I sail on lakes in Northern California. I love living on the sea. My main motivations are learning more about sailing, swimming/snorkeling/diving, making new friends, being part of a team, working on a book I'm writing, and to creating my life without my (now adult) children at home anymore. I am a good whole foods cook, can catch and clean fish, and dive your anchor :-)
I was a K-12 teacher, and I have more recently been teaching yoga and swimming and offer therapeutic massage. I also ran a small hostel in California and have good hostess skills and am used to working with all types of people.
I am a very strong swimmer, love snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing. I don't smoke cigarettes and I rarely drink - only occasionally in social settings. I eat a very healthy diet and enjoy cooking for others. I pay attention to details and don't mind cooking, cleaning, or helping with boat maintenance & sailing. I like to have some time for yoga, swimming, and writing most days. I am laid back, upbeat, have a positive attitude, and am easy to get along with. For the coming season, I would love to find paid work or a boat with dive gear. I can provide a CV and references upon request. ~Kellyfish
