I am currently in Morocco
, going to Gibraltar
next week (Nov. 6th, 2014), and I am extremely interested in the prospect of sailing across the Atlantic. I don't have much sailing experience - besides some small craft sailing when I was young - but I am absolutely willing to learn and do my part as an amateur deckhand
. There is no job that is below me when it comes to an opportunity such as sailing across the Atlantic.
Of course, I would be willing to chip in and pay for my expenses, on top of working hard to earn my place in the crew. I am extremely hardworking and a quick learner. My applicable skills include carpentry, boat
, and first aid training, but my abilities are not limited to the above mentioned.
I am not high maintenance
in the slightest, and believe that most people feel that I am good company to have. I am neat in my tendencies and don't require any special attention.
I grew up by the water
and often went on boat
trips on our family fishing
boat, so I am very familiar with being on the ocean, even if that experience was not on a sailboat. I would love the opportunity to enjoy an experience such as a cross-Atlantic journey and would be ever grateful to be given that chance.
Anyone who is planning such a journey and looking for a grunt worker to assist in boat preparations or other work
- who won't be a hassle to have around - please contact me at email@example.com
(I will have a phone
number once I reach Gibraltar). I would be happy to forward a CV and references
to anyone interested.
