Hi Angela,

Here's your post in the correct forum...

There is a lot already written about this, you can try and do a search...

It will be more difficult to find somebody to pay for your help sailing without experience, more often you would help pay for expenses...

Absolutely my pleasure...

You certainly might find a ride and cruising boat that would cover "your expenses" for your help... And some spending money... That isn't that far fetched...

Unless of course you're a troublemaker... You're not a troublemaker are you????

Re: Want to join as a crew on Yacht or Cruises

Well, i am witness to the fact that the crewing forum works. I was looking for some crew to take my boat from UK to Croatia in June & July and found one through this form. I found another via the Crewing forum of the Cruising Association. This was all on the basis of shared expenses (excl tech items for the boat, breakages, etc)
Best of luck
Andrew

@KWISPEL with due respect, I could not quite understand what you wrote. But looks like a job offer. Can you please make it more understandable??

Hi,

We are not a commercial vessel or cruise schip but a private sailingboat. We don't pay and don't ask money from you. We sail together over the islands to Gibraltar and will visit these places, that is it.

I will make sure to contact you.
But wouldn't it be better if you explained this awesome opportunity here. Interested forumers could also know.

Sounds like you're getting some good offers. Here's a short article on finding crew positions.
