Hi Daniel. I'm John and I'd like you to consider me for crew on your voyage.
I, too, love adventure and have traveled the world on a few occasions, stopping to live in India
then in Japan
Recently I have gained a particular interest in the Pacific. In 2011, I was diving
and kayaking in Marovo Lagoon
in the Solomon Islands. I was lucky enough to catch a ride with a single-hander on a trimaran
. I ended up helping out as crew for 3 weeks on the boat
. Pitched in as a reef lookout on the mast
, with cooking
, sailing, rowing ashore for fresh water, market shopping
, etc. On kayak
, then on the boat, it was really something unique and special to be around all those local dugout canoes and smiling faces.
I have more enthusiasm than experience in sailing, but I did do an ASA
101/103 (Basic Keelboat Sailing / Basic Coastal Cruising) course, grew up tearing around on small outboard
runabouts, love boats and the sea, and the marine
life (I'm a certified PADI Divemaster).
I could meet the boat in French Polynesia
. Please let me know your comments. Thanks!
