24 year old Swede in search of sailing adventure

Hi, I'm a 24 year old Swede who enjoys travelling. Over the past years I've travelled and lived in different parts of South and Central America.

I like to play guitar and singing. Made a living from playing online poker, but won't play if I'd find a boat.

I don't have much sailing experience but I'm eager to learn and gaining some experience. Ideally I'd find a boat that I could stay on for a longer time (weeks, months). I'm not bound anywhere geographically, so I'm open for passages anywhere in the world.

Looking forward to find some people that could take me on their boat.

Thanks

Re: 24 year old Swede in search of saling adventure

As a 24 year old, I can relate to your situation. While not a pro poker player, I can fantasize. Are you willing to travel to north or south America? If so, I'll let you know if I see something you might like.

Re: 24 year old Swede in search of sailing adventure

Op I'd suggest you join the local sailing club and crew for round the cans racing. Gain some experience whilst you're waiting. Get to meet a few skippers and you might luck helping on a short delivery or three. Add some experience to your resume.
I'd also suggest that in your post include what skills you have and some more about yourself. Can you cook? Do you have special dietary requirements? Are you healthy and reasonably fit? Can you navigate? Do you have your own gear to bring, ie wet weather set, sea boots, etc.
There's a big difference between being crew and being a passenger. Most skippers want drug free, fit, healthy, positive people who are eager to learn and work.
