Re: Looking for CREW PNW to Marquesas
I would love to meet you in Seattle to join you on your trip to Marquesas this summer.
An avid sailor, backpacker, swimmer, climber, and general do-anything kind of guy, I'm looking to sail across the Pacific. I hope to learn by experience enough to one day own my own boat and circumnavigate the world. But for the moment, my sights are set at learning to navigate and crew a boat in the open ocean to the best of my ability. My ultimate goal is to meet a friend in the Philippines by the end of August sometime, where we've been planning to travel for 8 years now. Beyond that, I would be excited about any and all routes/experiences between now and then.
I'm super laid back; the non-smoker who hangs out with the smokers, the guy who will jump in with two feet first, the nomad who'll change course whenever opportunity shows its smile, the guy who'd just as soon race to the top of a mountain in a rainstorm and back as read a book or play music in the sun. I've worked as a chef, a freelance jazz musician, a basic maintenance/repair guy, an editor, an Emergency Medical Technician, a carpenter, I and have a wide variety of other skills to offer.
As a medic and a responsible human being, I put safety first in EVERYTHING. My sailing experience is 6 months racing FJs and 3 days on an 1800s-style 3-masted ship. I know my way around a boat. Most importantly, I am very quick to learn and I work to earn my passage.
I hope to build a friendship and serve whatever function I can best fill. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Smooth sailing and safe travels!
Thanks so much for reading. Please don't hesitate to ask if you would like more information about me, my experience and skills, or my plans.
