Pacific crossing: Panama to French Polynesia in May - June

I am actively looking for crewing opportunities on a cruising boat heading from Panama to French Polynesia (with the idea of continuing to Fiji and Australia or Indonesia later) in the late May - June 2024

Sailing experience and skills:
- 6000+ nm on various monohulls in the UK, seasonal sailing in the Med, tall ships in the North Sea, an Atlantic crossing, and cruising in the Caribbean
- Comfortable with standing night watches solo, but will not trim sails or perform any manoeuvres without the captain's guidance or permission
- Pro at provisioning - during the Atlantic crossing, we never had the same dish twice or ate tinned food.
- Enjoy cooking healthy, unprocessed food, particularly Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
- Prioritize maintaining a clean and tidy interior and cockpit
- Medical First Aid trained
- No allergies or dietary restrictions, no seasickness, no smoking
- Responsible, reliable and adaptable team player, respectful about personal and shared space

About me:
- Well-rounded and well-travelled (50+ countries) mature individual with a business and marketing background
- Good communicator, fluent in five languages, lived in the UK, Italy and Peru
- Ex-travel concierge: organising on-land activities and local tours, creating smart itineraries, booking marinas, flights and on-land logistics, port and immigration clearance
- Adventurous and outdoor lover: trekking in Tadjikistan and Nepal, scuba diving in Mexico, climbing in Egypt, cycling in the Dolomites, biking around the Peruvian Andes
- Good at mobile photography and video editing, which can contribute to documenting your sailing journey or promoting your boat (Instagram: @whereis_kat)
- Community-conscious: volunteering at a wild animal rescue centre, participating in a sustainable cargo-under-sails project, rebuilding houses destroyed by the Russian invasion of Ukraine

Please reach out if you think I would be a good fit and addition to your crew. Looking forward to connecting with skippers who are willing to teach and create a supportive environment

Happy Kat - from Malta to Grenada


Kat was our purser I.c. Logistics, medical, grab bags and watch-keeper for 5 months and 5,000 NM. She loved to learn about systems and sailing, was always useful and ready to help and was a completely reliable watch-keeper. Kat is a happy and mature personality, full of joy in life and made the voyage more enjoyable, safer, super well provisioned and better organised. I was so lucky to have her on my crew and I hope she will rejoin my yacht when we start the next leg in a few months time..

Happy bright energy .


Kat is a really good bright open trustworthy hand. She would suit an experienced boat that wants to increase her experience and share knowledge. Very personable and easy to get on with as well as keen to get involved and understand the boat. Great communicator , punctual and good company. Would benefit from more experience on lots of different boats.
