I'm a recent university graduate now living in Germany
. I intend to return to the states next spring-- hopefully as a crew member
on a sailboat. I was hoping to find some advice here, both on the feasibility of this plan and how to approach it.
What you should know about me:
I have sailing experience, though not exstensive. Lots of dinghy racing
, windsurfing, lake sailing, and some pacific coastal sailing on a 31' Pacific Seacraft
. I'm in excellent shape, and a very strong swimmer with lifesaving and first-aid certifications. I'm personable and a hard worker.
What I'm looking for:
I want to sail back to the US next spring as a crew member
on a sailboat leaving from basically anywhere in Europe
. I can leave as soon as March, as late as June, and want to land anywhere in North America, the closer to NYC
How difficult is it to find such a position?
What is the best way to go about it?
Any other advice you may offer...
Thank you all!
