Crew Available From Pacific to Anywhere..

I'm a 25 year old, Female, American citizen, interested in learning all I can about sailing. I have a small amount of sailing experience, but want to expand my knowledge and experience in all areas. I believe I would be an asset to any crew as I'm easy going, outgoing, hardworking, and trustworthy. If you would like a more extensive information on my background, and some references please let me know. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Welcome to the forum, and I have a couple of suggestions.

1) you may want to list the general geographic area where you would be interested in sailing (most folks looking for crew will generally want to do a local sail or two with you).

2) Find a local YC and post a crew available along with your honest (as you've done here) assessment of your skills and attributes. Racing teams are always looking for crew, and IMHO, there is no better way to get a FREE cram course in sailing than by crewing on a racing boat.

Good Luck!

My location

Thank you for the feedback, I'm new to this so any help is appreciated. I'm currently in Brisbane, Australia, but I'm willing to travel anywhere in the Pacific to crew on the right boat. I have the passion to learn and learn correctly. I listen very well, and usually I just need to be shown something once in order to pick it up. Please contact me if you have any more tips or a possible crew position. Thanks and have a nice day!

I agree with S/V Elusive, we need to know where you would sail from. I see many people wishing to crew but have yet to see one reply for my request for crew. Am new to this board so maybe i did something wrong.
