Mediterranean-Bound, I Hope !

Hi! I'm a 26 y/o American woman, and I've been living in Senegal for 1 and half years as a Peace Corps volunteer. My service will be over in the spring of 2012 and my hope is to cruise the Mediterranean a bit before heading home. I have some experience -- I cruised from San Diego to Panama in the fall of 2009. I fell in love with sailing and I've known for a long time that was the first thing I wanted to do after Senegal.

My goal is to cruise out of Spain (or Morocco) around the end of April or beginning of May. I'd love to see portions of Italy and Greece and perhaps even make it Croatia, but my plans are entirely flexible.

Anyone headed that way or with any sort of advice or greetings for me, don't be shy! Very excited to be in contact with other cruisers.

All my best,

Emily

consider contacting the charter companies like Sunsail , etc they often have openings for "flotilla hostesses" etc.
