Hi
New member, Heres a bit about me, feel free to contact me.
I have been sailing since I was a small child on my parents 38ft monohull in Wales UK. Other experience includes Various annual 2 week bareboat cruises on 40-50ft Catamarans and monohulls in various locations such as Mediterranean and the Caribbean. I have a commercial diving licence allowing me to perform in water maintenance and cleaning on yachts, I am also a PADI SCUBA Instructor.
Looking to attain Offshore Yacht master in the future but want to build experience first as I have no formal yacht sailing qualifications only experience. Looking to assist as crew on crossings or any trip. Young, fit and competent in crewing and skippering a coastal cruise. Currently based in the Caribbean but relocation and travel is not an issue.

Hi, Rory, Welcome aboard CF.

You might want to put an ad for yourself in the Crew Available section of CF's classifieds. Most of the people who look there are interested in finding new crew; whereas people who look at Meets & Greets, are looking to see other cruisers out here.

Don't know if you are in Utila or Roatan, There's a cruisers net in Roatan, go down to west end and find a cruiser, look for their dinks and wait. I cant imagine they would not put word on their net for you. A lot of boats back and forth from the Rio Dulce.
You might even come across folks venturing further afield.
Utila has less cruisers but take the same approach.
It's likely you will get a response from folks down there.
or, do what I did years back...
Bought a 25 ft hunter in Utila, lived aboard and learnt to sail (really, it aint hard)
I owned her for about two years and then moved on to a bigger boat.
I had two three hr sailing lessons when I bought the hunter, that was nearly 20 years ago. I have covered some ground since then.

You dont need pieces of paper given to you to know or learn how to sail. If you do, stay off the ocean. Put the money you would pay for a course towards your own boat. Start small and work up.

You could check out Ceiba, even Porta cortez navy yard for a boat to purchase.

Just my advice. No, not arguing with anyone, not interested,

Best of luck
