Looking for: Caribbean;
Experience: 2881 ocean miles / 2150 coastal miles
I have sailed for as long as I can remember and am now a young (18) but experienced, enthusiastic sailor who is looking for a crewing position that offers both blue water sailing and an opportunity to make use of my racing skills. I have just completed the ARC followed by 2 weeks of cruising around the Windward Islands. I am now looking for racing boats to crew on during the Caribbean season. I will be staying in the Caribbean for the whole season and then hope to find a yacht to sail back across the Atlantic on.
