Crew Available to ANTARCTICA

Ahoy!

We are couple travelers (35 and 36 years old) from Poland and we are looking for oportunity to be crew on boat heading to ANTARCTICA.

We are available for all season 2017/18 and maybe 2018/19. Presently, we are staying in Argentina.

Since November 2015 we have been travelling around the world, mostly by hitchhiking. Our plan and dream is to visit all continents. So far, we have visited four (Europe, Asia, Australia, South America).

Magda has finished beginner sailing course and has a few weeks sailing experience on Celtic and Irish Sea. We have varied work experience like: waiter, receptionist, bartender, kitchen assistant or event manager. Magda is tourist guide, Przemeks last job was customer accountant. He was working in England. We were working hard before for example picking fruits on australian farm, so we dont worry any job.

We speak in Polish, English, Spanish (basic level but still learning and progressing), Russian (understand)

We love outdoor activity like hiking, climbing, running and really like cooking.

We are strong, easygoing, sociable, responsible and trustworthy.

We are open for any kinds propositions. Feel free to contact with us.

Regards
Magda&Przemek

Re: Crew Available to ANTARCTICA

Dear Shipmates
My name is Paolo, and I am a good chef who specializes in italian food. The wanderlust has got me. I'm traveling from 1 year in Us and Mexico but I am open to exploring new opportunities anywhere.
My most recent placements have been onboard photography, snorkeling and wilderness charters. I'm currently serving fine dining on a restaurant located in Miami, Florida.
My duties include:
- Provisioning, prepping, cooking and serving meals plus snacks and dessert for guests.
- Being the hostess for our guests.
- Instructing and assisting guests.
- Keeping the boat tidy while we have guests onboard and deep cleaning between groups
- Helping the captain and mate with basic deckhand duties, keeping the decks clean
I'd like to try a boat experience since I'm a goal-oriented person, eager to learn the sail.
My intention was never to travel for free, I volunteer my time to help the crew with their works.
I would learn the sailing and offer my support in exchange for helping, taking a guard duty, cooking, cleaning and boat maintenance.
I do not drink or smoke, but I don't mind others doing so.
I can teach you italian or just entertain you with my stories.
I have sailed a very short time, I wanna know the basics and learn fast.
I have the ability to befriend people of all ages and from all walks of life. I enjoy getting to know new people and forming connections with the people I feed. I am tidy, respectful, and try my best to maintain an upbeat attitude. I love to eat delicious food, have a laugh with friends, and generally just enjoy life.
My biggest areas of interest trying a sailing chance for future are Caribbean or French Polynesia, but I could be flexible if a great opportunity presents itself.
I'd like to join the crew and I'm happy to offer my energy services as a sidekick deckhand.
I should be so grateful to him if you could give me this fresh experience.
Thank you all in advance!

A little about myself, my interests and my plans
- confident swimmer, rarely/unlikely seasick, good listener, good communicator, no body piercings, no facial piercings, travel light (little luggage), respectful, fit & healthy, friendly, polite, LGBTIQ accepting, diligent, positive outlook, skilled, organised, trustworthy, open minded, enthusiastic, easy going, sense of humor, available on my own, enjoy cooking, don't mind cleaning, can follow orders, enjoy teaching, live on little money
- I left my place and have been having a need exploring new places... and exploring these places from the sea is a new favorite way to see them! My plans are currently pretty flexible if I finish my season in Florida this time.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat
- share experience, visit remote places, seek adventure, fulfill a dream, face challenges, finding myself, gain experience, learn to sail, sustainable travel, travel
- The SEA is my happy place! I grew up near the beach and have been swimming since I was barely walking. I love the sea and would love to spend time on a boat.

Greetings and welcome to Cruisers Forum.

There are presently 2 or 3 Polish yachts chartering out of Puerto Williams to Antarctica together with a similar number of yachts under other flags.

Sadly I suspect they will be expecting you to pay them but you never know your luck.

Find your way down there....either ferry or 'plane from Punta Arenas or RIB from Ushuaia to Pto Navarino... and ask around.

Even if you don't get a berth there is good trekking to be had on Isla Navarino so your trip won't have been wasted.

Good luck!

Once you get to Puerto Williams wander on down to 'Ponton Micalvi' - the 'yacht club' - and ask around. If you don't get to Antarctica there is a fair chance that , with patience, you will get on a boat going somewhere else......
