Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

We are looking for some low maintenance, clean people with a good sense of humour wishing to give us a hand with a few crossings. We are hoping to leave Fort Lauderdale next week in our lagoon 440 heading for Jamaica and maybe Cuba. From there to Panama and then to Galapagos and further to Marquesas. Sailing qualifications are not a neccesity but the ability to fit in with us is. Therefore, unless we know you, we would ask for references from someone who you have sailed with and you need to have had no convictions. You need to have a European passport or valid Schengen visa if you are interested in sailing the leg from Galapagos to Marquesas.

We are a non smoking couple who have sailed from Cape Town to Fort Lauderdale via Brazil, the Caribbean and the Bahamas. We are not in a position to pay for help but we can feed people!

You can have a look at us and what we do on our blog Impi or you can ask to join our facebook page cat-impi. Hope to hear from you soon!

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Shame timing is off for me. I am looking to crewat the end of 2013. I used to be a sailing instructor in The Netherlands, emigrated to Canada 11 years ago, own my own business (stone mason), and future cat buyer and cruiser. If at by the end of 2013 you are looking I am very interested.

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Ahoy!

Would you be interested in a New Zealand couple (both 29) joining you? We are travelling through Central/South America for the next year and a bit. We are also wanting to travel through parts of the Caribbean, and Jamaica and Cuba are on our priority list!

We are currently in Mexico and will be in the Cancun/east coast area early next week. We canít offer references for crewing, as we've never crewed on sail boats before. We donít have a lot of experience between us, but we are very easy going/happy go lucky people. We will work hard at what needs to be done, we can both cook well, and I can maintain/fix almost anything. We can offer a reference from recent WOOFing experience if this helps.

If you wanted to swing by Mexico on your way through, we would love to be on your boat. If you think this is at all possible, please reply or email me on mikey.willcox(at)gmail.com.

Many thanks

Mikey & Brylee.

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Hi !
I am based in Jamaica and just missed a boat leaving from Panama to french Polynesia due to a shoulder injury (which i'm hoping will be back to full strength by the time you get to Jamaica)
I would love to join from Jamaica onwards !

I've been sailing regularly on the family's Saddler 32', both racing and a lot of cruising. I regularly skipper this boat.
I'm a 26 years old architect here in Jamaica currently finishing up a project so I will have some time for a trip like this.

Regards,
Matthew

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Hey!

I believe I will be in the Marquesas Islands, or perhaps in Tahiti, looking to crew further. So, if the crew that you find doesn't work out, or if you would like additional crew once you're over there, know that you have me to contact. My name's Chael, 26, from Chicago. I will have plenty of experience by the time you arrive to where I'll be. See me here: Velabas - Travel Narrative and Drawings from Hitchhiking Around the World, that's my website. Also see my couchsurfing.org profile, username: CEEGE. Cheers!

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Hello, and fair winds! My husband and I are experienced sailors and travelers. Either separately or together, we wish to gain more experience passage-making. We are cruisers and own a 40' monohull sailboat. We will be shoving off for our own adventures once the boat is properly outfitted. We are easygoing, and do have significant monohull experience. We would be interested in joining you for portions of the Panama to Galapagos leg. Interested? PM me here and we will share our sailing resumes and references. Your Blog speaks for you. Thanks for your consideration!
Tony and Brenda

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

Hey there! I'm a 49yo academic (at NYU in New York City), and after a year of teaching I've got a serious sailing itch. I need to be in San Francisco May 31-June 3, but other than that my summer is flexible until July 29, when I need to be in Mexico. I'm based in New York but available to meet you anywhere. I speak French, Spanish, and bits and bobs of other languages.
I'm a USCG captain (100GT OUPV, Master inland, Sailing & Towing endorsements) and ASA-certified instructor with 32 years sailing experience, and have skippered and soloed a variety of sailing craft for 32 years in the Pacific, Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Tasman Seas.
I'd love to join you for some part or other of the trip!

Re: Wanted people with good eyes and good attitude!

I'm a 23 year old recent grad looking to do some traveling before getting a job. That sounds like an add from match.com, but hey I'll be a whore for a boat. I don't have any experience, and i hope that wont be an issue. Again I've recently graduated and I'm available right now, no pun intended.


Thanks for your time,

Daniel
