From UK to Brazil from End of December - Full Passage or Segments

Hello shipmates..

I am looking to help crew a vessel heading to Brazil from Europe in late December/early January.

I've no idea how I'm going to get my first leg to the Canaries/Cape Verde's organised, that's why I'm here... trying to find a forum or.. people that know people..

...I NEED YOUR HELP.. or advice.. any would be gratefully received!

Basically, I've had it with flying.. and it goes against my ideals... I'm on a mission to save CO2 and promote sailing as a viable (..and MUCH more fulfilling) method of getting around... AND, I'm raising funds for climate change research and alternatives to flying.

I've had many years sailing experience off and on - my Dad's Snowgoose catamaran mostly.. when I was a younger.

Also, I'm looking to serve a long-term need for travel to and from Brazil for teaching and social work.

Other than that, I always get on well with most people... I can cook... I cope well with pressure and stressful situations. I don't get easily upset or loose it. I learn fast, am flexible and willing to try new things, and can be depended on... I'll even clean the barnicals if I get a chance to make this happen!

If anyone knows anyone, it would be great to talk or come and say hello.

Please message me with any thoughts you can give.. is the message ok?

Warmest and best,

James

Thanks Claudio

Hi Claudio,

Many thanks for your reply.. it seems that you're in the wrong place at the right time, for me anyway. I'd never get to where you are by the 4th Jan.. I'd like to, but I need to find a way there... but, I'll see where you are when I get to South America.. I'll be tough enough by then!
Good sailing.

James
