Hi ! We are Andréa and Thomas (27 and 31), two French expatriates in Quebec! We're taking a sabbatical year to go on an adventure to Central and South America! Apart from younger sailing lessons (catamarans), we are beginners! But we both have our pleasure boat licenses and Thomas is taking online boating lessons with Ocean Skills. We also helped fix up a sailboat a few weeks ago in anticipation of a Quebec France transatlantic race and we are going to do a few outings at sea during the summer. We are trying to make our trip with the least possible carbon footprint and therefore join a boat departing from Europe from October towards the Antilles, Mexico, Panama or Colombia! (We are flexible on dates and destination) On the personality side, we are two super sociable people, curious to learn to sail and get hands-on on the boat! We love to cook, laugh, share… we took the best of Quebec! We will obviously participate in the on-board cash and other costs necessary for the crossing. Looking forward to meeting you and going with you! --------------------- Salut ! Nous sommes Andréa et Thomas (27 et 31 ans), deux expatriés français au Québec ! On prend une année sabbatique pour partir à l’aventure vers l’Amérique centrale et l’Amérique du Sud! Hormis des cours de voile plus jeunes (catamarans), nous sommes débutants ! Mais nous avons tous les deux notre permis de bateau de plaisance et Thomas suit des cours de navigation en ligne avec Océan Skills. Nous avons également aidé à retaper un voilier il y a quelques semaines en prévision d’une transat Québec France et nous allons faire quelques sorties en mer dans le courant de l été. On cherche à faire notre voyage avec le moins d emprunte carbone possible et souhaitons donc rejoindre un bateau au départ de l’Europe à partir du mois d’octobre direction les Antilles, Mexique, Panama ou Colombie! (On est flexibles sur les dates et la destination) Coté personnalité, on est deux personnes super sociables, curieux d’apprendre à naviguer et de mettre la main à la patte sur le bateau! On adore cuisiner, rigoler, partager… on a pris le meilleur du Québec! On participera évidement à la caisse de bord et aux autres frais nécessaires pour la traversée. Au plaisir de vous rencontrer et de partir avec vous!
