Seeking Crew Position - Australia - January '09

PS: My profile is empty because I just became a member.

Hi there,

I am looking for a crew position on a sail boat from January 2009 onwards in the region of Australia. I am flexible in terms of dates and destinations. I know my way around a sail boat and have sailing experience. It goes without saying that I will pull my weight on and off-board with chores, cooking, cleaning and overall maintenance. I can even do underwater maintenance as I am a passionate diver and own my own scuba gear. And will pitch in terms with finances for food, fuel, etc.

A brief run-down on my situation and motivations. I recently decided to change my life a bit, which resulted in me selling my Internet company (you may know it Ė itís called - ☺ I wish) after launching it 5 years ago. Even tough I loved getting up in the morning and going to work, I had the felling that a change of Ďsceneryí would be good for me. I am currently travelling through Australia and just came back from a sailing trip in the Whitsunday Islands. A fantastic trip and an eye-opener in the sense that I remembered how I love sailing. I grew up in a family where we spent our holidays on charted sail boats trough out the world and I owned a small catamaran (dart 18), which my brother and I would take out on the North Sea. (Yes, I am a Dutchmen.) Meaning I have sailing experience and know my way around boats, although I have never done an ocean crossing yet. Iím a 31-year-old educated hard working guy with an open, outgoing and hands-on personality. I donít get stressed, have a team-player mentality, eager to learn new things / people and always willing to help out others.

So, if you are seeking a crew member who can help out, keep you company, share experiences, Iíd really like to hear from you.

Greetings, and WELCOME aboard, Dave.

While PXL may not have been YouTube, Iím certain that founding & running a new company will have been an exciting & enlightening experience.

Hope you enjoy your time on the CruisersForum, and that you meet with suitable sailing opportunities.
