Hello, my name is Julia and I'm 21 years old. I live in south Brasil and am absolutely passionate about sailing and the ocean. I recently graduated Culinary Arts School and am now looking for opportunities to sail this world. I was born into a family of Sailors and since little I've always dreamed of sailing the word like my mothers family did when she was young. The opportunity to do that with my family never really occurred, so I decided to go after it myself. The little sailing experience that I have come from short sail trips with my parents and grandparents, and from a summer camp called Seatrek BVI, to which I went 3 times. At Seatrek I got ASA 101 certified in 2015. I would describe myself as adventurous, as I don't like the ideia of settling down, am always looking forward to trying new things and searching ways to step outside my comfort zone. I am also very active and absolutely love water sports, like kitesurfing, wakeboarding and scuba diving (NAUI Master and Rescue diver certified) I really know just the basics to sailing, but the willingness to learn and help out anyway I can is not lacking. I'm a very observant and determined, I also work well in teams and like to do things well. It would be a dream come true being able to join you onboard. I am open to do absolutely any activities and chores necessary. I am available from January 2023 on.
