Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 400 ocean miles / 2000 coastal miles
Judy: Racing, onshore & offshore experience. Looking for a challenging, social & adventurous way to see some more of the world... I'm looking for the opportunity to improve rudimentary sailing skills with a competent skipper/ crew. I have experience crewing on various boats ranging from 32-60ft, from racing to onshore to offshore. I don't have any official qualifications but a life living next to the sea has equipped me with a decent set of sea legs :D I have completed my studies, gained some work experience but I am now ready to see some more of the world. Due to this, I am pretty flexible in terms of passage duration and destination, but I am looking for an experienced skipper who can help me to improve existing and learn new skills! I'm happy to help out generally around the boat, participate in day and night watches and lend a helping hand to sail changes, helming etc. I love swimming, kayaking, sailing, surfing and generally anything that involves the ocean! Seán: I'm looking for opportunities travelling on board ocean going boats helping out in whatever way is needed I am an advanced dinghy and keelboat instructor also holding a senior instructorship qualifaction with seven years of experience instructing sailing. I love all things to do with the ocean especially sailing and am looking to meet new people while gaining more experience on board larger ocean going yachts. I am a very easygoing person and would be happy to help out in whatever capacity is needed.
