Ethantb: Hey,

I am a recent graduate in mechanical engineering, and have been traveling around Europe before looking for a career. I am good working with my hands, and a quick learner. Currently I am looking for a position helping on a boat where I can learn the basics of keeping things running smoothly. I do not have any experience, but am very keen to learn. If you have any questions be sure to send me a message and I'll answer it as soon as possible

SamuHe: Hey,

my name is Samuel, I am 24 years old and I am German. I want to follow my dream and that is to sail. I work as an Offshore Cable Jointer (made an apprenticeship as an Maintenance Mechanic), so I am used to rough weather offshore. Due to my job I got a few certificates like:

-survival at sea -1 aid -helicopter underwater escape training

I made a little video about me which is basically describing me best, enjoy -->

If u are unable to watch it, due to a bad internet connection just reply to me and I will write a written "application".

Due to my job, I got some ocean experience on a power boat (secat defender)
Kind regards

Aloha_Sailing: We're 2 funloving persons, having the dream to sail the world one day. But luckily it came to our senses to rather learn sailing before.
We worked on a cruiseship for 5 months and now are travelling Thailand and Malaysia. From May 2017 on we're looking for a sailboat, that needs very friendly, happy, funny, only little experienced but willing-to-learn amateur crew, who can help out with any work that occurs while sailing, e.g. painting, repairing, cooking, scubadiving, playing music, being good company and so on. We have lots of time, so we also can join for longer periods. Our goal is to gain experience, learn as much as possible about sailing, navigation, weather and so on and of course to live adventures, laugh with good people and have lots of fun.
Our experience includes joining one week as crew on a motoryacht in the mediterranean, sailing small sailing dinghies on lakes and joining a short sailcruise.
That's not much, so please help us to improve!

Margo Riley: I'm a sourdough baker and chef from england, who grew up in the highlands of north east Scotland I dream is to sail away from this island on my own boat one day and meet and eat with new people in ports all over the world. Ideally with a bakers oven in tow.
Im new to sailing, i have done a couple yacht deliveries and crossed the bay of biscay this summer, i enjoy cooking onboard, i dont share a love of tinned food so im happy to help out preparing food. Im curious about most things, and like talking with people finding out about them.
I have had a few different jobs and projects in life so far, im good at starting, slack at managing and struggle to finish with any long term commitments, Sailing it seems suits me, as i am always starting on a new part of the journey.
When sailing 'I want to find the land that time forgot' escaping the rat race, im living in that moment, taking everyday slowly, relaxing, time is not important anymore.
When i accept an invitation to crew on someones yacht, im there to help and be good company for however long the journey is, its like accepting a lift from a stranger on a road to get somewhere, you want to be friendly, share stories and make the journey as comfortable as possible. Im not making a life commitment and im not checking a profile for a perfect fit, im just living my life trying to get to different places, meet new people and learn new things along the way.

nixon56: Hi,
I recently spent 6 weeks sailing on a 54ft steel boat named s/v fairwinds rom cuba to jamaica and on to panama.You can find captain fredrik molin for a reference on crewbay or facebook under fairwinds although the boat is on a slip in colombia.I aslso own a 5.5m aluminium fishing boat in Tasmania australia where i use it recreationally for fishing,diving,spearfishing and freediving.My brother recently bought a 53 ft yacht and i have been on it a few times but would like to gain experience so when i go home(whenever that is) we can take the yacht on some wild adventures on the stunning but wild and windy west coast of tasmania. I enjoy the ocean a lot and also enjoy cooking and dont mind hard work as i have been an electrician and a farmer. I am a social person but can also chill and read a book.I have no plans to go home and would consider europe and mediteranean .Hope to hear from you soon.

Regards Alex
