Crew available: From Mexico/Central/South America to Any Caribbean islands

Hi all,

We are a New Zealand couple (29 yrs) backpacking through Central/South America - currently in Mexico. We are looking to sail to and spend a little bit of time on any of the Caribbean islands - Puerto rico, Dom republic, Cuba, Haiti, Galapagos etc etc.

We don't have much sailing experience between us, but are very easy going - happy go lucky people, can cook well and I can fix almost anything - help out with boat maintenance etc. Happy to learn/help out with what ever crew duties as necessary and share food costs etc.

We are currently in Oaxaca, Mexico and can be on the Caribbean cost in a matter of weeks if necessary OR happy to jump aboard your boat later in the year from other locations in Central/South America. Whatever suits YOU

Cheers - Good Journey!

Mikey + Brylee

Mikey,

The Caribbean is like a one way street and you're at the wrong end. Where you want to go is 500-1000 miles to windward. Not many boats will be doing that.

Yep I understand that, hence my stating that we could jump on someones boat at either end of the continent Perhaps people might have trips planned later in the year and we might be in a more suitable location.
Cheers
Mikey
