I've been looking on here for some crew positions and finally decided on letting others know I am looking. Just like most everyone else I want to get more sailing experience and I am willing to go almost where ever I can get it. Now for the part that separates me from most other "Available Crew Members".
After spending the majority of my online time for the past 8 months sifting through cruisersforum, sailnet, sailingforum, cruiserslog, etc... (btw cf is much better and much more active than most others- and that is directly related to the active members on here
) I believe I know what I want/need.
I am looking for crew positions aboard 35'-40' sailing vessels of all makes. I really would like to learn from those singlehanders out there since that is what I would like to end up doing. I am great company unless I get a creepy "ax murderer" vibe from you - then I am just "ok" company. I am 6'3" and have the build of a linebacker. I know a great many things but just to name a few of the more useful ones: bilingual- english
and spanish, spent the last 5 years in the medical
field- everything from running on ambulances to patching up dogs
hit by cars, I have some mechanical aptitude but not as much as those "gear heads".
So for any of you singlehanders out there that would like to show a thing or two to a beginner- the do's and don'ts that you have learned along the way, finding out if that fancy gizmo that can make it real easy to attach to a mooring
ball is really worth buying
or just another piece of clutter- please send me a message or email
me at austinfigueroa "at" hotmail "dot" com.
I only have one standing obligation but I am free for most of the forseeable future.
