We both have our Swiftwater Rescue certificates for rivers and my partner is a Canoe Guide. We are both housetrained and can cook well with whatever we have to use. We are both able to amuse ourselves on long journeys and settle our differences without raised voices. We work really well together. We both also take direction well and are happy people. Very much looking forward to meeting some people and doing this amazing trip!

QueenNomad: I lived on a sailing catamaran for 3 years between 2012-2016, and during this time I acquired experience coastal cruising. I assisted with all aspects of sailing, including managing sails, night watches, navigation, cooking, and deck hand chores. Since then, I have participated in as many regattas as I can fit into my schedule. I am currently taking courses to become a scuba dive master. I am fit, adventurous, easy going, and a hard worker.

Melekmels: Hi all,

Completely new to this side of life (travelling and working away from the usual) not sure what to say.
I am a adventure seeker looking fir change in career and would love the opportunity to work and travel at the same time.

I was introduced to this site by a lovely lady I met on my travels to Corfu back on the 10th may 2017, when she told me about it an urge within told me this was for me. I am looking to do something different from the usual rat race city life. I am aware I do not hold any previous experience with working on board however I am a very quick hands on learner.

I am happy to start off with shorter sails to a feel and then build up or if the right professional paid position comes up I am happy to be flexible.

If you have any questions and want to know more please feel free to ask me.

I look forward to hearing from you and maybe even sailing id hope!

KateintheClouds: I am an easy going, kind hearted person who enjoys painting, baking, reading and a wide range of physical activities including yoga, pilates, hiking and essentially anything maritime related. I've been working as a Host/Crew on week long charters in Croatia and am looking to do an Alantic crossing sometime mid to late October or early November-ish. I always enjoy learning new skills; currently I am learning sign language and am working to improve my carpentry skills. Nine times out of ten I am either laughing, smiling and am usually quite funny, though a touch nerdy at times, but maybe that’s just the glasses!
