I Am in Palma de Mallorca Looking to Crew Across Atlantic

Hi I am new to sailing and am looking to cross the Atlantic from Palma (currently there). I have joined most of the agencies over here but as I have little experience I am not having much luck. I am willing to work for free and am a very fast learner. If you are interested drop me a line. My basics are 25 year old male, UK citizen (Devon), university educated, I am an able cook willing to put my hand to anything.

I think you have better luck by looking in the canaries where most boats departure from.

Palma is a great spot to be Thats where all the agencies are.

There is one great way.... hull knocking! Just pluck up the courage and go hull knocking! ask who has need of crew

You may knock on 100 hulls, but there far more than 100 boats there


Good luck

Good luck Webby. If I were in your area and in need of crew you'd be aboard right now. I hate to cook.
regards,

Another useful tack is posting in/on Marina Notice Boards...
A4 sheet with heading and basic details, abilities, ambition, destination... about 4 lines would do... then repeat your contact details all the way to the bottom and part cut under each line...
Then anyone interested can just tear of one section leaving the rest for others... ie;

Delivery Skipper available for Trans-Atlantic/Med/Caribbean deliveries...
CV supplied on contact through E-mail/Phone below
