Hello my name is Andrus and I'm looking to crew on a ship heading to anywhere in Asia
from anywhere in Australia
. I'm in Perth at the moment and in February I'll be coming to the end of my Work
and Holiday visa, which means I have to go back to the US. However, flying seems a little too easy so I decided that I want to make it home without getting on a plane.
The first step is get from Australia
on a boat
, then I'll be going overland to Europe
and hopefully arrive there in time to go across to the Caribbean
in November. I don't have a strict timeline but I have a vague plan to meet a friend in India
at the end of May. Ideally I'd like to leave Australia around the end of February 2012 but my dates are flexible.
As for sailing experience I don't have much. I did take a class in college (uni) and sailed around a lake a bit, and I've been on a few catamarans around the US but that's about it. I'm a decent cook and a quick learner so I'm confident that I would still be a valuable crew member
despite my lack of sailing experience.
