Hello everyone, i'm based in the UK after living in Vancouver for the last two years. While I was out in Canada I was lucky enough to gain some work as a deckhand and galley assistant on two yachts that ran charters. Since returning to the UK I have found I really miss being out on the ocean, and would like to explore the possibility of sailing across the atlantic later on this year (i believe alot of the boats leave for the caribbean september - november?). I am also a budding documentary film maker, who is interested in recording peoples stories of life at sea and the adventures they have experienced.

If anyone is in the same boat as me (no pun intended), and feel they could help me out with some advice that would be great! I would love to hear from people who need crew or who are interested in undertaking projects with me. Many thanks and happy sailing.

Best,

David

Hi, David,

Welcome to Cruiser Log. Hopefully you've already posted an ad on the Crewfinder part of our forums. If not--get there

Please let us know what happens with you and your filmwork as you crew for someone--we'd love to hear all about it.

Fair winds,
