Experienced Couple Seeking Passage SE Asia => S. Africa, Spring 2012
My boyfriend (33, German) and myself (25, American) are experienced sailors looking to crew across the Indian Ocean from SE Asia to South Africa starting this spring.
We have several years of experience sailing and living on boats, both on "tall ships" (large, traditionally-rigged vessels) and sailing yachts. We have volunteered as crew before, and made several long ocean passages. We have experience with maintenance on both wooden and fiberglass vessels, and we are good and resourceful cooks. I have even held positions as paid ship's cook.
We have a professional, safety-oriented attitude toward sailing. But we are also fun, good-natured world travelers, eager to meet new people and enjoy a great trip in pleasant company. We are also eager to learn more about sailing, and appreciate information from more experienced sailors.
We don't smoke and do not get seasick. We are willing to share costs. I will bring my ukulele, and my boyfriend will bring his incredible collection of good and not-so-good jokes.
We are currently in Australia, but we will soon be in Thailand. We are willing to meet the boat anywhere in SE Asia. We will be available as early as April 2012.
