Ahoy! Seeking families or couples looking for crew. I will be in Fiji
in February 2015. I would like to crew on a boat
either cruising the islands, or make passage
to New Zealand
. Or even Hawaii
. I have time. I am a 38 year old female from Vancouver
, BC. I am a sailing instructor, avid racer
, and 27' boat
owner. I often enjoy solo sailing. I have logged over 10,000 miles coastal, and my longest offshore passage
was 800 miles.
Most of my experience is skippering 40" charter
boats in the Caribbean
. I know, child's play! I also made two 800 mile off shore passages in a 72" Global series challenge race
boat. My strengths are navigation
, sail trim, boosting crew morale, cooking
, and remaining calm. My weakness is that I am not mechanically inclined. So if the engine
fails, I would happily sail us through the doldrums!
I am very strong, reliable, hard working, and I don't complain. I can cook and clean to earn my keep. I will pay for my food
, gas, and other expenses. I can also pay you a small fee, depending on the length of time we sail. My personality is very relaxed, and I can adapt well to suit any situation EXCEPT a romantic one! I would prefer at least one other female on board.
Please contact me to make a plan! Cheers, and happy sailing
