Crew Member Avaliable

Ahoy hoy,

I've spent this last summer living aboard a sailboat learning the ropes cruising on Lake Superior. Fall has arrived, the boat has been pulled, and the water will be freezing over soon. I'm eager to continue sailing and would like to be crew where help is needed. My eyes are set on the south, but good things come to those who wait and the more experience the better.

My schedule is very flexible.

Some Facts- 26 year old female, non-smoker, positive attitude, ready for adventure.

Clove—

It would help if you listed what certifications/skills you have that would make you a more valuable crew member.

Some examples of certifications are:

STCW95, CPR, Wilderness First Responder, RYA Yachtmaster or equivalents

Some skills would include:

Cooking; navigation and coastal pilotage; electrical, plumbing, diesel maintenance/troubleshooting skills; fiberglass repair skills; splicing; spinnaker handling; celestial navigation; 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.

I'd say you're off to a pretty good start. Might be worth contacting Liz Clark and seeing if you could crew for her on s/v Swell.

It looks like she's going solo at this point. She's got a cool thing going though, that's for sure.

Clove, I am in route to Mexico from Key West. Came from Charleston South Carolina. A friend and I dropped anchor here at Key West yesterday. He has to get back to his wife and grandson in north Carolina within the next few days and is leaving me with my dog Leroy. Come hang out in Key West for a few days. Most likely will be sailing to Isla Mujeres from here.
