Hello there! I understand that hardly anyone has enought time to sit through every potential crewmember life history, so I will try to keep it brief :) This year I quit my job to fullfil my longtime dream - to sail the Atlantic Ocean as a crew member on a sailing boat. I am not interested in a simple cruise during which I will be laying on the deck and tanning myself - I want a full exprience with working together with other crewmembers to safely bring the boat to its destination. I very much hope that I will find a captain that will consider me a worthy addition to his/her crew :) I have a sailing licence and I did much inland and coastal sailing (on the Baltic sea) as a skipper. However, to be completely honest, I have no experience in sailing on the open ocean. I can however help in boat maintanance, know the ropes and have some basic sailing experience. Also, I may not be Gordon Ramsey, but I know a thing or two about cooking :) If you'd be so kind to reply I will be happy to share more details. Thank you and hopefully see you in person in the future! Jakub
