Re: Newbie looking to join a crew

Ditto on the "get experience" advice. What do you have to offer them other than being willing? You should have some experience and be able to offer practical contributions (money, be able to fix things or people, cook, navigate, play music, tell jokes, etc.).

If you want experience/education, consider an offshore school. A week or two on a learning cruise will be quite an education and help you decide to move on or not to the next level.

Good luck!
