Hello sailors, I'm Lena, 27 years old and from Germany. 3 weeks ago I jumped onboard to crew a beautiful 70ft ketch for a transatlantic crossing from the UK. However, the trip has unfortunately been cut short in Brest, France due to several maintenance issues. So, I am now looking for another opportunity! A transatlantic crossing has been a dream that I have had for quite a while now and it would mean a lot to me to get the chance to sail it with a boat full of kind and easygoing people. I have been sailing for 6 years now, mostly in the Mediterranean and the Baltic Sea. This summer I gained my first little experience as a skipper on a 46ft monohaul. I'm a quick learner, easygoing, always eager to help, I have never gotten seasick, I am fully vaccinated, I do not smoke and I would really love to join you! Please let me know if you would like to get more info, cheers!
