SEEKING UNPAID WORKING PASSAGE - MADAGASCAR TO AFRICA/SOUTH AFRICA

G'day folks,

Been awhile since I've been on here (it happens when you lack internet access crossing the Indian Ocean).

So, I'm Simon, a 31 year-old (next week 32) Aussie. I'm a nomadic writer travelling the world by land and sea on very flexible dates, destinations and on pretty flexible legs.


I'm currently in Nosy Be, Madagascar. I seek unpaid work (but won't say 'no' if you offer payment) as a participating member of a crew (not looking at laying back and watching others) heading to mainland Africa - specifically, South Africa but anywhere in the mainland from my current location.


Ready to hoist sails when you are.


Attributes:


- Bloody hard worker
- Bloody reliable
- Bloody good cook (picked up a few extra galley tricks with a French chef)
- Bloody quick and bloody eager learner
- Bloody good team player
- Bloody good at taking on responsibilities
- Bloody helpful at helping with the preparation of your vessel



Sailing Experience:


Darwin, Australia to Kupang, West Timor, Indonesia - 400 nautical miles on 'Tropicbird', a 50-foot ketch with a crew of 7.


Phuket, Thailand to Galle, Sri Lanka - 1087 nautical miles


Galle, Sri Lanka to Chagos Archipelago - 1006 nautical miles


Chagos Archipelago to Agalega, Mauritius - 1090 nautical miles


Agalega to Nosy Be, Madagascar - 603 nautical miles all the above on 'San Miguel', a 47-foot sloop with a crew of 3.



Total sea miles: 4,186


I won't win the America's Cup any time soon but have gained some understanding the principles of sailing... I think.


As far as I know (which isn't far), I don't get seasick. I'm an avid surfer (most people call it 'wiping out'), a great swimmer (most people call it 'drowning'), love to write (thenomadicdiaries.wordpress.com) and meeting new folk. I love learning new skills and I have an urge to sail. Can't explain it, it's just in me, denying me to fly.


If you think I'm the missing link to your crew (which, let's face it, I am), I'd be happy to meet 'n' greet in person anytime-anywhere around Madagascar.
