Young Woman / Mediterranean-Bound / Spring 2012

Hello all!

I'm a 26 y/o American woman, and I've been living in Senegal for the
last 1.5 years as a Peace Corps volunteer. When my service is up next
spring, my hope is to cruise out of Spain toward the Mediterranean and
- with luck! - get as far as Croatia or beyond!

I do have sailing experience -- I cruised from San Diego to Panama on
three different boats in the fall of 2009. I fell in love with sailing
then and I know that's what I want to return to now.

My current goal is to cruise out of Spain (or Morocco) around the end of April or beginning of May. I'd love to see portions of Italy and then perhaps make it to Croatia or beyond!

Anyone headed that way or anyone who has ANY thoughts or advice, don't be shy!! I'm so excited to be in touch with other cruisers.

All my best,

Hello, I'm setting off from Spain around that time, but the other way down to Morocco and (eventually) the Canaries.

Try floatplan for lots of crewing options.
