20th August, 2012.
I'm seeking opportunities to crew on short (day/week) or long (week/month) deliveries or crossings / passages or legs thereof on motor
or sail yachts. I have qualifications, experience and skills in engineering, sailing, emergency medical
response (in remote
locations), ski patrolling, travel and culture(s), scuba diving
, Kayaking, and many other life, professional and recreation activities. I can handle a boat
well from the helm
or at any station including the galley
. I'm clean and considerate and very easy to get along with with a strong and capable character.
I'm seeking experience, mileage and adventure. And of course making new friends. My goal would be to develop more experience and skill working on boats. I live on the west coast
(sailboats) as often as possible. I'm willing to travel by air under my own steam, to a (/ an ideally) near by starting location and pay for reasonable personal expenses when ashore like beer
etcetera (which need not be much [and I don't have much of a budget
or interest for that]). I'm also a British Passport holder and can start in Europe
/ UK for a trip that might be coming west to the Americas. I'm not seeking payment / compensation per se, but would expect / appreciate operating expenses (basic provisions) / costs be covered please - especially for an Ocean / distant medium + duration trip.
Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for considering me as crew on your next nautical voyage. I look forward to hearing from you, via this thread and my contact details. Fair Winds :-)
