Jamie Smith, female, 56

Ref 48689

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Los Angeles, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America; Mediterranean & Black Sea; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 750 ocean miles / 250 coastal miles
I am a hiker, cyclist, writer, skier and adventurer ready to crew on your boat. I crewed on a Dutch fishing boat with no engine from Bermuda to Providence, Rhode Island years ago, and have crewed on my friend's clipper in the Mediterranean. I lived on an anchored fishing boat for two years in Friday Harbor, Washington as well, kayaking or dinghying to work. I'm looking forward to crossing the Atlantic from East to West with my smart, athletic teenager. I teach workshops on communication, have a sunny disposition and am an excellent problem-solver. My goal is to have and captain my own boat after gaining experience crewing.
