Female Crew from Quebec Looking for Pacific Expenrience

Hi everyone!

I am a 37 year-old female from Montreal, Québec (Canada). I am presently on a half-sabbatical from my job; I am looking to do some sailing between now and end of December. I would love to sail the Pacific and would be willing to join any leg in the November or December .
I am currently sailing as crew on a 47 feet monohull - we started from Almeria, Spain,m and are now on the west coast of Portugal (Lisboa). We will be departing soon for Cape Finistera and the Bay of Biscay.
I have trained and worked as a sail guide/skipper in Australia (Whitsunday Islands) for 11 months where we took tourists out on charters around the coral islands, and have done the same for a month and a half in the St-Lawrence estuary in Quebec, which is a very difficult zone to navigate. I have also sailed as crew for a few days in the Caribbean and Lake Champlain (northern USA). I own my own boat,a 26’ Grampian, which is a Canadian-built sailboat.
I am perfectly fluent in English and French and can manage in Spanish. I also love life, good things, good food (I’m a mean galley cook as well), meeting new people, and I love nature (I’m also a trained herbalist). I am very portable, very flexible, and want nothing more than to sail with a great crew and an experienced skipper who can teach me more about sailing, in new corners of the world.
Write if you have something to offer!
