Crew Available South America to USA

Hi guys!

I am a US Citizen and student living in Santiago, Chile and currently studying Spanish. I am writing this post in hopes of finding a crew position with someone traveling from somewhere in South America to anywhere in the US, around the end of April. My Chilean student visa runs out April 28th, and I will be purchasing a plane ticket back to the US in the next few weeks if I canít find someone that has definite plans for making a trip.

My skills and abilities as crew:

  • About a year and a half experience racing/sailing dinghies mostly in lakes in Iowa, but I have also participated in a few regattas in the Pacific off the coast of Chile in Algarrobo. Please understand I am not professional crew, but I am dedicated and very eager to learn more.
  • Professional Chef for more than 5 years. I am happy to cook for crew, and will pay for my share of meals for the trip.
  • EMT - I have been state certified as an EMT in both Iowa and Pennsylvania, but I have not worked professionally in this capacity. Hopefully youíll never need someone like this.
  • Spanish - I am taking advanced level classes in Spanish right now. Iím not fluent, but Iím more than capable to hold conversation and get my way around.

Who am I as a person? I am a 27 year old male, close to graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish.I enjoy sailing honestly more than anything Iíve ever done in my life. You could say Iím a little obsessed. Sailing has not been easy to access in Chile, and Iíve really been missing it a lot. Besides sailing, I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, exploring nature, camping, etc. Lately Iíve been getting into learning how to Salsa dance. Iíve been known to enjoy a good beer or three, but not underway.

If I seem like I may be a good fit your schedule or crew, or if you know someone else who might have an opportunity available, please do not hesitate to reply or send me a message! I hope this isnít too long winded, but I wanna make sure I find a good match for a longer trip like this.

Thanks so much!
