Longtime Dream, Little Experience

Hi, cruising people!

It has been my dream for a while - to live on a cruising cat. I have little sailing experience (all of it on Canadian lakes ), but I haven't met a task or job I couldn't handle yet, always loved the water, and I'm about ready to launch into this. Glad I found this forum: seems like a good community.

I'll be looking for an adventure as crew on someone else's boat to start - and I like to start big (like an Atlantic crossing). I always think constructively. I'm always eager to learn. Hope to meet some good people here, who can teach me about the cruising lifestyle; I'll be happy to put in the work. Pretty excited about this!

About me: born in the USSR, Canadian citizen, not allowed into US(collision with the US "justice system" a few years back). Good swimmer, strong and agile, positive most of the time. 37. Based in Toronto.

Looking forward to connecting with some of you!
