Hi! It's awesome to join the community. I am a 27 year old Male and I recently quit my job as a Project
Manager in San Francisco
to explore the world and meet new people. I'm currently taking sailing lessons
at OCSC in the Bay Area and by the time you read this will probably have my US Sailing Certification
in Basic Keelboat and Basic Cruising.
In a perfect world I would meet a potential Captain
at a Harbor somewhere in South East Asia
to grab dinner/drinks and meet the crew. I have no intention of racing
or making a large passage
(although I would), but would rather enjoy cruising around the beautiful islands and enjoying the beaches etc.
I would like to join a sail boat
sometime in early May and than get off sometime in Late June to Early July. I could be at the complete mercy of the Captains itinerary. As of right now I am debating buying
a plane flight into either Bali, Indonesia
I am about as easy going as it gets... love to crack jokes and go on social adventures, but I don't mind keeping to myself and reading either. I am taking a huge leap of faith in life after quitting my safety
net job and am definitely still a little scared about it, but I know seeing the world by boat
is a once in a lifetime adventure. I plan to purchase
my own boat someday.
Any and all advice is very much appreciated. It's all pretty overwhelming trying to figure out which path to take to beginning something like this. I've made a profile on findacrew.net as well.
I am a hard worker, quick learner, and will absolutely bring a fun and positive attitude to whomever I join. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you out there!
