Dear Shipmates

Introduction

I am an easy going, enthusiastic traveler who enjoys sharing the joys of good living, great food and creating memories with friends. I have experience blue water cruising although I still consider myself a novice sailor. I bring a strong work ethic, sense of humour and adventure and will contribute to a pleasurable and enjoyable journey. Looking forward to enjoying the waters around Southern Europe this summer and Mexico & the Caribbean this winter. Fair winds & following seas.

Re: Carol

To Whom It May Concern:

This is confirm that Carol has crewed for us on at least 5 occasions, performing positions of cook and crew (standing watch night and day, including offshore crossings). She has sailed with us (on a Lagoon 470) along the coasts of California, Mexico and Central America.

Carol has been our favorite crew of choice, as she is always easy-going, pro-active, quick to take on chores without prodding, and she gets along extremely well with others. Having lived on a boat for 5+ years, I know what it takes to be a good shipmate, and Carol is one of the best. She is also a fabulous cook, with a focus on a healthy diet.

I have no reservations whatsoever, in highly recommending Carol. She is one of a kind, and a remarkable woman.

Best regards,
Judith

I am planning to return to Europe this fall and would love the opportunity to cruise or day sail while there. I am a competent cook & provisioner, a former teacher with a keen eye so enjoy learning and photography. I am very active & open to being a part of a team & new adventure.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

share experiencevisit remote placesseek adventuregain experiencelearn to sailsustainable traveltravel

I love sailing and being in the water. I live on an island off an island in the Pacific Northwest and the sea is a part of who I am and how I live my life. I enjoy sharing the journey, seeing and experiencing new places and learning about myself and others. Coastal cruising in Mexico is some of the best in the world I have sailed the coast twice from Baja to Chiapas and points south and know many wonderful stops & places to explore.
