Okay, the short version :) My fiancé and I are looking to crew our way to New Zealand over the next year. I've some experience as crew and RYA Day Skipper (Coastal) and Comp Crew. Currently both in Europe and looking to cross the Atlantic in Oct/Nov/Dec 2019 > S.Pacific early/mid 2020. We're kind, honest, hard working people and both willing and keen to learn as much as possible. We want to see the world and experience it with people who, like us, aim to get the most from this life! Not made of money but not broke either. Prefer cooking and conversation to marinas and restaurants any day of the week and looking for a similarly minimalist boat but ultimately it's not a deal breaker. Definitely looking to avoid the general tourist environments though! Love cooking and happy to do the majority of it aboard. Cleaning and chores no problem. Nav and crewing capacities no problem. No engineering or maintenance experience but would love to learn! Any questions fine away! Warm regards, Alex and Alla
