My girlfriend and I are in Mazatlan and have just been chatting to Zeehag about your post, it sounds like you tick all the boxes on our list and we may just tick your boxes too.
We've been crewing
upon a Catalina
42 from Los Angeles since October and are looking for an alternative boat for a trans-pacific trip to Australia/NZ from Puerto Vallarta
. We'll be in Puerto Vallarta
by the 20th December and spending the Christmas
and New Year with family
In terms of us...
I'm Tom, 25 years old, from London, England
and I speak conversational (although rusty) French. I have ocean & night watch experience and am qualified to RYA Competent Crew level. I'm a snowboarder, wakeboarder, skateboarder and surfer (soon, hopefully. Once I can pick up a board and learn!). I studied photography
at college and Advertising at university and for the last couple of years I've been working at one of the top Social Media agencies in London, We Are Social. My dad's a television producer and I've grown up around film sets where I've had some experience working too before getting into Advertising and Social Media. Oh and since using my GoPro on the yacht over the last 2 months I've become ever so slightly obsessed - I'll mail you some awesome shots.
Yaz is 23 years old, from London also and has the same sailing experience as me with the added benefit of growing up with yachty parents and going on many sailing holidays as a child. She studied journalism at university and has been working in one of the top PR and Events
companies in London, Cake Group. She's got loads of experience researching, planning and holding events
as well as getting press coverage for clients ranging from big boys like Sky TV to boutique restaurants etc. She's got valuable television and press contacts in the UK and internationally and has experience standing in for presenters too. Yaz is currently looking at taking her photography
from amateur to semi-pro so she's experienced with cameras and getting the right shot!
Most importantly though, we think your idea is brilliant and would love to be involved if possible - as well as being decent people, friendly, always up for a laugh and very creative.
Feel free to check out our blog to get an idea of some of our interests: The Bloggiest Bloggy Blog
and follow the links to our social profiles etc, etc.
E-mail me on tom [dot] harvey [at] me [dot] com
if you're interested in taking us on - it'd be great to know a bit more about you and some more details if possible too. Alternatively, you can Skype me on tomtomtomharvey - I've got reasonably good internet
access until Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
What sized yacht are you thinking about? We'll be in Puerto Vallarta within the next few days so we could take a look at some for you if you needed us to.
Hope to speak to you soon!
Tom & Yaz
