Atlantic crossing. yes i quit my job

Hello everyone. I have decided that I will not be tortured for another minute and quit my job yesterday. I am hoping to find a boat headed to Europe sometime soon. I would be able to contribute to expenses. Tell your friends!

The window for crossing the Atlantic is narrow, May and June. There is always a concentration of boats in Georgetown Bermuda waiting to cross around this time and the owners are all in the internet cafes looking at at the weather.

However, I have no idea how one would communicate your availability to them.

Best of Luck to You. I view my job as torture too.

You're now almost living my dream.

I've been living aboard and cruising for almost 10 years now, and I have NO desire to cross an ocean. 3 weeks of motion and rolling ? No, thanks. Give me a nice island anchorage any day.

Job, can anyone explain this word to me ? Does this mean that you must go someplace at the same time most days ?
Do you get something in return ?

Have you seen this site ?

Free sailing and cruising crewfinder (crew wanted) listing by CruiserLog for yachts and offshore ocean boats.

Good Luck and I hope it all works out for you.
