I'm an aspiring sailor from the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. I have done a basic sailing course presented by the Scouts and it was great fun and I learnt quite a bit about sailing.
I still plan on getting my own yacht one day but at the moment I have a few other things to sort out first. One of them is to go to Brazil in December to meet up with a girl I met online about 7 years ago. Romantic ain't it? So I checked out the airfare for a round trip and it will work out at around R16000 (South African Rand). Now in any country I think that is a lot! I pondered that for a while and thought of rather traveling by sea. I couldn't find any boat charters, or I wasn't looking properly, but I thought I might try finding someone who might be sailing there and then joining them as crew. I know this is a long shot but I feel it's worth a try. I'm planning on going to Sao Paolo more specifically.
So if there is anyone out there heading to Brazil in December and looking for crew then I'm your man!
Cheers and thanks.
