Hi Captain Mark,

My name is Diego, 27 y-o argentinian/italian, rookie at the arts of sailing, but completely enthusiastic about learning. Currently finishing diving course at Phi Phi, looking fw to be part of a sailing adventure, and very interested in your plan.
I am a hard worker and determined character who can cook, dive, chat and even sing if there is a guitar being played. Have travelled around the world a bit, but always by land. Agricultural engineer as a profession, currently trying to swap and learn more about the sea.

I have noticed you have already had many replies. If would like to meet me an think I may be useful, please do not hesitate in contacting, or I can head myself to Singapour for a meeting.

If anything, my Thai mob is 0916303102.

Best regards,

Default crew position


I'm probably late, but you post is still active.

Are you still looking for crew? Where are you? In addition to the info below, I speak Japanese and have lived in Alaska.

Just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I'm interested in joining your crew.

Hereís some info about me.

I sailed Hobie Cats as a kid. Sailed whenever I could get on a boat, weekly club races on Long Island Sound and Puget Sound, crewed from Guatamala to Florida, bare-boat chartered in the Caribbean and Tahiti. Had my own boat, a Catalina 30, and "cruised" the San Juans and Gulf Islands five months each of the past few summers, single-handed and on the hook. Winters I was living on her at the marina.

Graduated from UCSB and then went traveling, chasing mountains around the world. Have spent about 15 years abroad, mainly in South Asia, Japan, New Zealand and Central America. Worked on and off for Stanford University during the 1980s. Have lived east coast, west coast and in between. Have done a lot of bicycle and motorcycle touring. Interested in nature, especially birdwatching, mushrooming, fishing/crabbing. Just sold my house, gonna miss my vegetable garden. I love reading.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

I've decided to get more seriously into boating. I bought my first boat a few years ago and the learning curve has been incredible. I knew wind and sails, sailing lingo and how to handle a boat, but now it's all about safety and systems and the responsibilities of a captain. Best way to learn is hands-on. But now Iím boatless again and am looking for the opportunity to sail with others and learn more about boats. My dream is to sail to Alaska. And then who knows.

I sold my Catalina 30 not too long ago, but now looking to get back and more deeply into sailing. Very interested to learn more about all aspects of boating. Would appreciate the opportunity to help out on your boat, get more experience and knowledge, and have fun. Thanks.

And if you have the time, where in SE Asia are sailing hubs where one would have a good chance of finding crew positions. I figure to just go with my kitbag and prowl the marinas. Thanks.

Jack Whittemore

p.s. Iím healthy, unencumbered and financially secure.

This trip officially ends at Homer or Anchorage but extentions may apply. the vessel is a 51 foot Morgan OI heavy comfortable ocean passage maker. I have one crew spot taken and room for two more. Experience required or highly motivated beginner, This is a cost share trip as in you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the boat and all personal consumables. I take care of all boat related expenses eg fuel, berthing , maintainence etc. Proof of funds and valid passport for at least 8 months required prior to acceptance. This trip will be fun to the nth degree. This trip will be hard to the third power, and above all , safe as humanly possible. We plan to use professional weather routing service and all prudent measures to ensure a successful voyage. Enquiries welcome. Good luck and Bon Voyage.

Default Join the crew from Japan to Alaska

Hello, I just read your post and I am very spirited about joining the crew.
I am a 23 years old french man who just finished his degree in mechanical engineering and fluid mechanics. I am now traveling east through Europe and Asia. The first step of my trip was a long trek through the Alps in between my place (Grenoble) and Vienna. I am now riding a bike to Istambul and my plan so far is to reach Japan through Georgia Russia Kazakstan Kirghizistan and China. Your journey is a perfect continuation of mine.

I spent most of my lifetime in the mountains and alpinism is a big thing in my life. I love the feeling of being confronted to the elements and have always looked the oceans with fascination. Though I have already been onboard, I can t say that I have any sailing experience and am fully aware that for such a big adventure it could be a must. Though you ve been writing that motivation could make the difference and I am eagger to go!

About my ability to:
-live in a rather small place: I have been working in a hut at 4000m high on the mont blanc for 2 month in a team of 5 people in a very rough and remote environnment.
-handle dodgy situation with calm: I have been part of a mountain rescue team on the mont-blanc.
- handle bad weather and still smile: I have been studying for a year in Scotland which made me waterproof.
- speak foreign languages: I can speak happily french and english, have a chance to be understood in german and spanish and expect to be able to get some survival skills in russian before I reach Japan.
- learn the sailing skills: I am an easy learner and if that can help I know some rope work from climbing and understand the physical laws behind the sailing process from my studies.
-cook: Cooking was part of my job in the hut on the mont-blanc plus I am french and I love it
-being entertaining: I am trying to learn to play the harmonica but I am for sure laking talent.
-Have the money: I gathered 10000 euros for my journey and so far I manage to spend 300 a month which means that in the worst case I should still have 5000 for the sailing.
-First Aid: I have been through the first aid training 4 years ago and should remember the basics.
-find the fun part of a rough situation: I am quite good at that.

I don t know what else could be worth telling but if you have any question, I ll be glad to answer.

I am a spirited and trustworthy man and I really hope that you will give me the chance to be part of this adventure. I can not check internet often since I am on my way but I should be able to do it at least once every 2nd week and I am looking forward to hear from you: redor_ivan@hotmail.fr +33637662859.

Bon vent!

Default When you get to Alaska

I wanted to make this voyage but got caught up in some business. I live in Anchorage and I'd like to be on your yacht when you depart from Anchorage back to Homer. I'll only have a few days, but am looking to get a taste of sailing and would like to bring my girlfriend. I'll treat you to some hospitality and a beer if you (and your crew) want to meet up to talk about your adventure! I could even get a group together if you want to present some photos of what you have done so far. Send me a message and I'll provide my phone for when you get here.
