I think Pedro (the OP) is looking for an inexpensive way for him and his friend to go cruising. If they have some sort of on-the-water experience, are good at roughing it and open to new experiences, and don't have any lifestyle conflicts with their potential skippers, there could be some cruisers who would welcome them. Pedro and his girlfriend might have an even better chance of going cruising if they can go on some short sails to increase their sailing skills and gain some references. Also, if personalities or other aspects of the trip don't work out, the consequences are much less of a bother on a short trip.
