Hi, my name Paul.
I am 24 year old American guy, with a recent BS degree in Civil Engineering from Cornell University, with a research
background in computer modeling. It is a lifelong dream of mine to sail across the planet. Now that I've crossed the country by tire, I'm ready to get experience crossing the oceans by sail and keel
I'm a beginner sailor, and I want to learn how to crew. I taught myself how to sail solo in a sunfish, and have also sailed Hobie 16s and helped crew on a J/22 in the SF bay
. I'm an eager and quick learner.
I'm willing to do the dirty work
, cook, clean, or stand watch... anything to help out. I'm an experienced traveler, so I'm used to living in tight quarters (sharing a truck bed
at night), and eating cheap
(rice and beans) if it comes to it. I am a pretty frugal guy, so I'm willing to sail cheap
if that's your style. I love to read and play music
(guitar or drums), I'm athletic, and I'm easy to get along with, and I like to work
I can leave from the US West Coast
any time from mid-February to August. If you want help like me and want to know more, send me a message. Let's talk.
