Want to travel on the sea

Hello!
I'm traveling the world alone and now looking for a crew position on a boat. My experience with sailing is close to nothing. But I'm willing to learn and do some work as well. I would like to start the trip ASAP. somewhere from Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal or anywhere else from this part my plan.
(Note: it can change from time to time)

You can follow me around and see where I'm and where I have been so far at my website
(started from Stockholm, Sweden)

I'm easy going, loves to travel and I got a diving license.
Like meeting people and share stories and enjoy the best of life.

Re: Want to travel on the sea

Hi Endless! While you're waiting for a crewing opportunity, learn the basics/language of sailing. This will help you a lot in building your seamanship skills. There are a couple of sailing books (about 100 pages/$25 USD each), published by ASA that you can purchase from most booksellers; mail order amazon.com is one of them. When you are on the water, not only you'll be applying what you've learned, but it will make sailing much more fun. Good luck! Mauritz
