Hi all! I am looking for a boat to join as crew for the Atlantic crossing from the Carribean to Europe! From April on I have time to join on a trip to get to know the crew and see if there is a click! I (Dorrit, 26 y/o, female) have been sailing with my family my whole life, in the Netherlands, Turkey and Croatia. Furthermore after my studies in Colombia I crewed for a month on a boat crossing from Colombia to Panama. Next to the basics in sailing I can assist with cooking, cleaning and teaching English, bachata dancing or even kitesurfing! My other skills which could come in handy are in graphic design and video editing. A little about myself: after having graduated an Industrial Design Engineering masters at the TU Delft two months ago, I worked last summer as a fulltime kitesurf instructor in the Hague, which I extremely enjoyed! During my studies I have studied in Colombia for half a year and lived in Kenya for a few months. Currently I am working and travelling in Peru and Colombia for the last few months. I am naturally curious to learn about different cultures and learn different languages; thus I also learnt Spanish ánd dancing in Colombia. Now, after having improved these skills and worked as a kitesurf instructor on this beautiful continent, I am slowly planning to return to the Netherlands to work in the Dutch summer :) I would love to hear from you! Dorrit
