Hello! My name is Lauren, and I am looking for a month long opportunity to crew on a boat! I am new to this world and have just a few sailing lessons under my belt so I would categorize myself as a beginner. However, the best way to become a better sailor is to just do it. Looking to learn the ropes and be as useful as possible on the boat. Again, and I new to this so I am seeking out short term opportunity first with the idea of slowly joining longer crews down the road. I'm 28, have an easy going personality, and am craving an adventure at sea with the goal of learning quite a lot during the journey. I enjoy a minimalistic/nomadic way of living, and am down for just about any type of adventure. Right now focusing on the Caribbean region. I look forward to connecting!
