Hello from San Diego!

Hello! New to the forums here and want to give a quick intro! I'm Anna- originally from Alaska (but have been in San Diego for can races, anyone?) and have worked on everything from dredge rigs to charter yachts to 130' brigantines. My family owns a sundowner tug in Seward, Alaska and I've spent many a good month cruising those waters. Gotta love boating and the people that come with it

I just sold my Cal 29 in anticipation of some major traveling this coming year...which brings me to my main reason for joining here. I've signed on with the owner of a Lagoon 570 cat in Slovenia as crew starting in March of next year. I'm planning on staying with the family for around 5 months, but I know this is longer than the 3-month allocation allowed by the EU (or whoever decides these things.) Where might I ask about an getting an extended-trip visa that spans many countries when I'll be spending more time on water than land?

Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you all. Happy sailing!

Everything can be cured with saltwater: sweat, tears, or the sea.

Hi Anna and welcome to CruisersForum. I am definitely no expert on EU immigration rules but I am sure someone will have some ideas.

Sounds like you have a super background.

Enjoy the forum.

New title

I'd start a new thread and just ask your question. A relevant title could bring you more responses. People are more likely to respond if you're asking for help/information.
