Seeking unpaid working passage - madagascar to africa/south africa
Been awhile since I've been on here (it happens when you lack internet access crossing the Indian Ocean).
So, I'm Simon, a 31 year-old (next week 32) Aussie. I'm a nomadic writer travelling the world by land and sea on very flexible dates, destinations and on pretty flexible legs. I seek work as a participating member of a crew heading to mainland Africa - specifically, South Africa but anywhere in the mainland from Madagascar, my current location
Ready to hoist sails when you are.

I won't win the America's Cup any time soon but understand better the principles of sailing... I think.
As far as I know (which isn't far), I don't get seasick. I'm an avid surfer (most people call it 'wiping out'), a great swimmer (most people call it 'drowning'), love to write and meeting new folk. I love learning new skills and I have an urge to sail. Can't explain it, it's just in me, denying me to fly.
If you think I'm the missing link to your crew (which, let's face it, I am), I'd be happy to meet 'n' greet in person anytime-anywhere around Madagascar.
