My name is Olle. I have been thinking that it would be fun to go on a longer sailing trip. Until now i have mainly done day trips on the local lake and dinghy racing in the past. Now my girlfriend also started to like the ideo of a longer trip so i came here to see if it could be arranged

Welcome Olle

I suggest you post a message on our "Crewfinder" board as skippers will not look here on this board for their crew.

Good luck.

Welcome Olle,

Suggest it might be a good idea to fill in your profile then people can see where you are from and maybe offer some rides?

As a general rule, I always suggest best way to both learn to sail in all conditions (bonus is minimal cost) is to go join a local yacht club as a crew member.

Most coastal clubs will have offshore racing divisions - and believe me - they all need crew.

So experienced or not, if you can commit to crewing on a race boat weeke in week out, you'll probably end up getting those longer trips you're seeking.

Good luck

JOHN
