captain kicked me of boat!

so i replied to a captains post about needing crew for crossing atlantic.
i met him in lelystad, netherlands, covered my jobs, my experience iv had sailing, and all is good.

5 days later we stop in Ijmuden, netherlands, and out of the blue says he wants me of boat because he thinks i wont be useful.

im pretty upset at the moment, i was so excited about this, i even sent out postcards.
its very frustrating that he agree's to take me on, then changes his mind.
i even rejected one offer to take this one.

has anyone else had experience with this sort of thing?

im a compitent sailor, he didnt even give me a chance to prove it.

on that note, does anyone know which ports/marina's are good for finding boats crossing atlantic?
i heard Gibraltar is a good one.


thank you for any advice, have a lovely day.
