I am a 3rd year biology student in desperate search of new adventure, and in need of rediscovering the reason for the long days spent inside at campus. I am finishing my BSc in early/mid fall, and I am looking for a sailing yacht and skipper
that would be interested in taking me along following that. I am looking for an experienced and responsible skipper
and crew, that can ensure the best conditions for a trip like this. I have no time limitations and no prefered destinations and routes.
I must admit I have no sailing experience, but I am a quick study, I am used to being on the water
and rarely get seasick. Furthermore I am expecting to attend a danish certified proficiency course over the summer, to get a general feel with sailing.
The sea and marine
life is the reason I started studying biology in the first place. I have a large general knowledge of the sea and life under the surface. I scuba
dive and practice spearfishing in my free time, and I am a reliable cook, great with children
and general maintainance. I am smart, and will look for a solution when a problem occurs.
I have always travelled as much as possible, and to me that is all there is. It's all I wanna do, and throughout the years I have travelled many corners of Europe
, New Zealand
. It is safe to say that encounters with new cultures and people of the world is experiences I treasure dearly, and I am open minded and interested in every aspect of new places and new people.
Though I am excited about new adventure, I do realize that life on a boat
isn't just fun and sunbathing on the deck
. I know it is hard work
and I am more than willing to do my part and contribute in any way I can. I am also well aware that there will be long days similar to the next and that some sort of everyday life aboard a boat
will occur, and that evey crew member
have their chores and duties. I know that is important for the sail to be a safe and enjoyable journey.
However the journey and experiences aboard a boat is as much an adventure to me, than visiting distant corners of the world. I have always dreamed of one day owning my own boat and sail the world on my own. I am hoping to get a feel of life at sea and learning
the skills and dos'n'don'ts connected to that. Crewing
on a boat must be the best way to learn - I just have to try it.
So if anybody out there could see any opportunities in bringing me along for a ride, I would be more than happy to hear from you. Though I am a newbie when it comes the art of sailing, I really do feel I can contribute in a lot of ways. If not on deck
, then as a cook or maintainance worker or babysitter or personal marine
life guide. Please - let me know.
