Hi Everyone I am an avid sailor. I prefer to be at sea over being on land. My favorite days sailing are with 20+ knots of wind and moving right along. I like to be heeled over and can even deal with galley cookie in rough seas. Though it is always better to prepare something before hand if you know of rough seas approaching. I have worked on boats from the Bering Sea to the Galapagos on the Pacific. I have worked and sailed from the ABC islands up the Atlantic coast to Massachusetts. . I am a very diligent watch keeper, can adapt to the circumstances sailing sometimes brings. I am not afraid and have respect for the sailing vessel and her ability. But I also appreciate the sea. I have not done an Atlantic or Pacific crossing yet. But believe my fascination with being at sea and my passion for being under sail makes me a great addition to any crew. I have an uncanny knack for being able to sleep in tight quarters. I get along well with others. If down time on a boat I like to read and play games. I am constantly on the sea and look for any opportunity to go sailing. I have only been on land once in 8 months. I'm always up for an adventure and willing and able to handle most chores and roles on a S/V. It would be very helpful for me to get the opportunity to join the ARC as I will be trying for my captains license soon. My whatsapp is +1 503-954-4785 I surely hope that there is a boat that needs my help as crew. Look forward to hearing from you all. Will forward CV on request. Thanks for your consideration Rebecca/belle
