I couldn't be more excited about stumbling across this website tonight. I grew up sailing in the Virgin Islands with my family and since puberty I've been able to help out on the boats we've rented. My formal knowledge is lacking but I'm hoping that this forum will be a great opportunity to learn and gain wisdom.
I'll be in Hanoi until June but afterwards will be adventuring around SE Asia for 10-12 months with my girlfriend Kristie. We'll be on a tight budget and will be looking for short term employment along the trip. Sailing around Indonesia, Micronesia, and the Phillipines would be an incredible opportunity and is at the top of my priority list. The only problem is our budget.
Any advice or experience from budget sailors / crew hands / vets in the area would be great!
