Itís been my dream to be able to sail across the Atlantic! I love sailing and I love a good adventure. In the last few years I rode
a bicycle from Chicago to New Orleans
and I have climbed mountains in Brazil
Iím relatively new to sailing but I did spend last summer as a crew-member on a 33í racing boat
out of Chicago. We participated in major regattas, Saturday afternoon and Wednesday night races and several overnight passages. I crewed on the Chicago to Mackinac yacht race
. On that race
we rotated crew on a watch schedule and encountered rough weather
over a period of two and a half days.
Iím enthusiastic and curious. I get along well with people and love a challenge. I cook well and speak Russian and Portuguese. I have experience in wood working and basic mechanical and electrical
troubleshooting. The timing of your transatlantic crossing fits my schedule and I would like to speak with your, further. Should you require references
, I would be happy to supply them.
Are you still looking for crew?
What are the dates of your trip?
Very truly yours,
