Aussie girl and US guy in Florida looking to head south

Bridget (33 from Australia) and me (Kenny, 26 from New York / Connecticut) are down here in Florida looking to find a boat cruising to or towards South America, ideally through the Caribbean, but easily OK with Bahamas or Central America, etc.

Bridget has some experience sailing around Australia, I met her traveling around last year. Now she's in the US, we hitchhiked clear across the country up to New York and now down to Florida, we're in the Keys at the moment looking for boats.

We're ready to go today, tomorrow, the sooner the better! I've been traveling for five years, this will be my first trip by boat and first time to South America, it's exciting. Bridget is amazing, into gymnastics and worked for the circus for a bit back in Australia.

Looking forward to meeting someone who's sailing that way, just let us know, thanks all!

By the way, here's links to our couchsurfing profiles (hospitality exchange website) to get an idea of who we are.

Re: Aussie girl and US guy in Florida looking to head south

Hi, we are family cruising on a 47" with our 10 year old girl, we actually are in the virgin islands, heading to Porto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba (february - march) then to Panama (april) and the Pacific crossing.
We are looking for crew to help on the boat and share that great experience with us. We share the cost of food and gazole, which doesn't amount to much, the cost of visas and stuff, the biggest expense probably beeing beers in ports, and the return airline ticket of course.
We offer a double berth and private bathroom for whoever will come with us.
If you're interested or want to know more about us, please ask.

Are you still in Florida, where? I had one crew who had to bail unexpectedly today. We expect a weather window on Friday to head from Key West to Isla Mujeres on Islander. Recently retired couple.
