Hello, my name is Héloïse, I'm 28. I'm traveling around the world since November 2018, and I'm now looking to find a boat to cross the pacific. I'm quite experienced - 1 transatlantic, 2 transmediterranean, many costal navigation in Mediterannée, Carabean sea, pacific and Atlantic ocean. Before traveling, I worked for 5 years as marketing manager for the Grand Large Yachting group (blue water cruising boat Allures, Garcia, Outremer, Gunboat) and I'm now an independent worker as marketing consultant, journalist, and artistic director. I really like to sail and i'm so motivated! I'm easy going, always enthusiastic, with a good sens of humor, open minded and respectful. I will be very happy to help with all the tasks onboard, and I have to say that I'm also a good cooker (french style). My interests are about travel, music, all different arts, sport (diving, running, climbing, yoga), sustainability, nature. The trip around the world was a dream came true 12 months ago. I'm trying to travel with a minimum ecologic impact so I prefer to cross ocean by boat instead of plane. After the transatlantic and one year in the Americas, my new challenge is to cross the pacific and visit pacific Islands.
