Hi there sailors

I'm a female Brit with little experience in sailing but am keen to learn more! I'm awaiting my visa to be processed to emigrate to sunny Oz but in the meantime I feel it necessary to engage in some more travels>/biggrin.gif

I worked on dive boats as a hostess/deckhand in the Whitsunday Islands for a couple of months, so I do have some idea of what life at sea entails. I'm quite open to where I go, but am quite interested in doing an Atlantic crossing, and/or sailing the Caribbean and/or Central America from the beginning of Feb '09.

I love diving and am quite into amateur underwater photography. I speak a few languages (in order of fluency: Portuguese, French, German & Spanish - the latter is fairly proficient but is more 'Portunol'!). The technical side of my brain has been well worked over the last year (I work in Operations for a luxury carmaker) so I would like to think I'd pick up the technical side of sailing quite well. I can cook but would prefer not to be confined to the galley for each meal, unless the other crew members' cooking pose serious health risks>/blink.gif I'm in contact with a few people on another site but by chance have come across this one, so who knows what I might find here!

I'm looking forward to exploring more opportunities and 'meeting' fellow like-minded people

Welcome aboard Alex.

It is best to post a message in our "Crewfinder" section as skippers/owners will not be looking on THIS section for crew.

Good luck in finding what you're looking for.
