American couple looking to sail from Colombia/Panama to Anywhere - Dec '17-Mar '18

Prepare meals? Scrub the deck? Work with tools? We'll do it! We are not looking for a vacation or a free ride. We want to become competent enough to own our own boat and travel the world.

We are an American couple dreaming of owning and living on a sailboat, but first, we must learn to sail. We are looking for an opportunity to crew a boat in exchange for experience. We are looking for a captain who is willing to share knowledge and experience. We both have experience with Lasers/Sunfish and Fain has a Canadian pleasure craft operator card. We are both PADI dive masters so have spent a lot of time in and on the water. Other than that we have minimal sailing experience.

We are both strong and hard workers. Rachel is a data scientist interested in sustainability (24 yrs), and Fain is a carpenter (29 yrs). When we aren't traveling we live on a farm for much of the year so we are no strangers to hard work. Our home is a tiny cabin so we are used to tight quarters and preparing delicious meals with minimal cooking space. We both have experience in food service and construction and are eager to work on your boat. We can provide references if desired.

We are conversational Spanish speakers and always looking to improve. In our free time we read, learn about homesteading, and practice yoga. Rachel is a certified yoga instructor. Fain is a rock climber so he is good with knots and rope management.

We don't care where we sail to, as long as we learn the ropes along the way. We are currently in Cartagena but will travel to other parts of East Colombia (Barranquilla/ Santa Marta), San Andres, or Panama for right opportunity. We are available anytime from Dec 20th, 2017 to April 1st, 2018.
