Boat: I don't own a boat
Posts: 3

I'm Guilherme, a 30 years old easygoing brazilian guy who enjoys travelling, meeting new people and enjoy life in many different ways. After getting redundant on my previous job due to a crisis in the oil market in Brazil I've decided to leave everything behind and sell everything I had and give up my investments to accomplish my dream of travelling around the world, living and working on many different countries on the way without any return ticket. I've been on the road for 2 years now.

I'm currently based in the Bay of Islands looking to crew a boat to the South Pacific after I have talked to some people who suggested me doing the crossing. I thought it was an incredible idea since I really enjoyed sailing with my uncle when I was a teenager so I recently decided to give it a try. I really don't have any time limitation while cruising but I'd like to visit some islands (or all of them, maybe?) including Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Solomon Islands before heading to Asia.

I don't have experience as a sailor but I have other skills that can be useful on a boat. I'm a very curious and fast learner person thanks to my solid engineering background (I even worked on oil rigs in Brazil for three years) which could prove to be handy on long sailing trip, I can teach portuguese and spanish, I can cook and clean and perform any maintenance task required and the most important, I have a "can-do" attitude and I want to learn everything about life on a boat!

I'm not intending to sleep, read, sun bake and wake up when it suits me as I'm aware I'm not a passenger but actually a crew member on a sailing boat and also have to share the expenses. I was raised on the shores of Brazil and I have aptitude for the sea (I can swim and I don't get seasick) so I believe the life on the ocean is not a problem for me. I know it is hard to share the boat with someone you barely know and keep a good level of personal space at the same time but I think I can minimize these issues since I've learned how to live in my workplace and deal with the same people for days during my offshore experience in Brazil. I can also talk about anything for hours and be quiet when the situation requires and I believe I'm someone really easy to get along with as I'm usually happy and friendly.
By the way, I don't smoke

Let me know if you think you can give this guy a try or if you know someone who can!
