Eager to sail the Mediteranean

I am a 21 year old Canadian college graduate currently in Barcelona Spain. I sail every chance i get in the summer back in Canada. I would love to have the opportunity to sail the mediteranean but am having no luck finding a boat to crew on. Im full of energy and can work like a mule on a boat when neccessary. If anyone needs help sailing the sea im the man to talk to. Throw me a line if you have one.

try a yacht delivery

If you want to get mileage as opposed to gawking at topless women or enjoying the scenery, try a yacht delivery company. I did this two years ago and had a great time. Reliance Yachts usually has a bunch of boats going from southern France to Turkey (and elsewhere) that need crew. You have to sign up (for which there's a fee), but they should give you a travel stipend to get to or from the boat. The only drawback is that since it's a delivery, the skipper will most probably have a minimum speed he wants to maintain (in my case, 5 knots), so you may end up motoring a bit. On my trip, the skipper and I had watch rotations of 3 on, 3 off, as it was just the two of us onboard. It took us 11 days, including a 24-hour stopover on the island of Salina in Italy. You should know how to read a chart and all that other sailing stuff to get hired. When we got to Turkey, I had the chance to crew on a delivery going back across the Med to Mallorca immediately, but had to turn that offer down or risk divorce.

Darcy—

You won't be able to respond to PMs until you have 10 posts. It would help if you gave a short summary/resume of your sailing experience and other related skills that would be useful as a crew member. Can you navigate, stand watch, are you first aid certified? CPR certified? can you cook, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
