Looking to Crew July 2010

Novice sailer with loads of enthusiasm. Hoping that someone can use my stellar order-following abilities in the month of July (I have the month off). Contracted as an teacher in Costa Rica until the end of the year. After that I'd like to find something long-term on the water. Am I searching too early? Basically, I'd like advice! Make some friends? Thanks all!

Hey cg - welcome to SN dude. Do some digging around - you might find something. This place is a lot of fun.

I don't know if you would consider boats leaving Canada/the US to head south but that is a common passage/cruise for your starting time frame.

If so, the Southbound group might be a good place to post.

It would help if you got some certifications, like CPR and STCW 95, and picked up some skills, like cooking, watch keeping, coastal pilotage, during your time teaching. Having certifications and skills will make you more marketable as a crew member.

You're probably a little early for finding a boat to crew on given your schedule.

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.

Thanks, this is all great stuff! I am actually from Washington State, so starting from that area could be an option later on. I like the idea of getting some certifications... I am sort of a jill-of-all-trades, if you will, having working in many different industries (catering, bar tending, ropes course, naturalist guide, blah blah...) Was thinking of wandering the docks on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica and talking to people for information... or is that too forward?

just walk the docks and ask around. I wouldn't worry about stcw 95 unless you want to get a paid deckhand spot and even then, stcw 95 is a joke. Just have a good attitude, be honest about your experience level and be willing to learn and you should be able to find a ride.
