Re: How easy is it to find someone to sail with?

Total, one thing that you should do is fill out the "about me" section in your profile. This info will help all of us give useful advice. As of now, we don't know where you are in the world, for instance. This makes it harder to give advice on things like good local YCs that are friendly to newbies.

Re: How easy is it to find someone to sail with?

A guy I met in Panama did this. He was traveling solo but rarely on board alone. He'd pick up travelers with no set plan here and there. The latest girl he picked up was exceptionally charming and only with him for a few weeks. Though that wasn't his goal... prior to that he had a surfer on board for about 6 months.

I think the most important thing is to not let it stop you from leaving. If you let it become an excuse you'll never leave.

Before buying a boat and trying to find crew, try being crew. You will learn a lot.

Thanks. I'm still a long way off the purchase but I'm trying to get a broad picture about how things work etc. This is just the beginning!
