Hello I am looking to join a boat on the World ARC for the leg from St.Lucia to Santa Marta in January 2020. Or a boat leaving to Guyana/Suriname also :) My name is Mirjam from Switzerland and I am currently crewing on a 43ft 2002 Hallberg-Rassy from the Canaries to the Caribbean and am looking for a boat to Colombia in January. I have so far logged over 4000nm, and have just arrived in Barbados. I am a responsible person, completed the RYA Competent Crew Course, can stand watch and help with sailing, cooking, cleaning and a lot of other boatjobs. Please get in touch if you are looking for an easygoing and responsible person to join your crew! Fair winds, Mirjam :)
