Hi there, I'm an engaging marine biologist and sailor with broad-spectrum interest in wildlife, the ocean and tourism. Outgoing, easily befriendable and passionate about sharing experiences, education and journeys with others. For the last 4 years I have been studying and working around the world (between South Africa, New Zealand, Germany and the Azores archipelago). Now I am seeking to crew the big Atlantic crossing/ ARC/ARC+. I am heading to the Caribbean for an internship on coral diseases. Willing to meet you anywhere in Europe/Africa. Available after 1 November 2021 and flexible. I can assist with any work, cooking, cleaning, repairs or even English/marine bioiogy lessons. Please send me a whatsapp on +27 78 832 1735 or an email on [email protected] Excited to hear from you! Best wishes Josh
