Tried to reply to your post a few hours ago but it doesn't appear as if it went through, so here it is again.
A little about me: My name is Adam. I am 24 years old, fit, healthy, non-smoker, no drugs, laid back, love sailing, trying to explore the world and experience as much as possible. Your post doesn't specify what all your plans are but I have plenty of funds to get me to Australia including the bond needed in French Poly. I also have already acquired a "Working class Holiday Visa" for Australia.
Boat Experience: I sailed last year for 4 months in the Caribbean
. I logged almost 2000nm and did a few 3-4 day passages. I worked all last summer in Alaska
aboard a Salmon Seining vessel. For the past 6 months I was in San Francisco
saving for Australia and working at a sailing charter
company doing repairs
on their fleet. All told the almost all of the past year and a half has been spent sailing, or working on and around boats.
Situation: In early December I scoured the sailing forums
looking for crew positions to Australia. I found a boat leaving Ensenada mid April and agreed to come down mid March to help get the boat ready to sail. I was there for a week working on the boat and I realized that neither the boat or the owners are what I would consider "seaworthy" Nice enough fellows, but I don't trust them or their boat to get me across the pacific safely, so I am looking for another boat to crew on. I am currently in San Diego
and am able to literally hop on the next flight to the Galapagos
If I sound like a candidate for crew on your boat I would love you to call me at 515-306-4632 or send me an E-mail at email@example.com
. And if not a simple "No thank you" would be nice so I can continue looking
