sailing job

I heard that you can get sailing jobs taking a boat from one destination to another. Some you don't need sailing experience others you do. I have basic sailing experience, sunfish and a 30 foot Morgan. I'm a 19 year old college student. Is there a good place to find information about these things? A
website that does these type of things?

Try crew finders, crew seekers, and look on the boards of your local marinas

If you want a paying job, I'd recommend you get your STCW 95 and at least a USCG OUPV or six-pack.

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.

Ah... then you might want to look at crew finder sites... Having the STCW 95 would probably improve your chances of getting picked, as would getting a wilderness/marine first aid course, CPR and Celestial navigation skills/training.

Everyone on this forum should give you a interview to make sure your not a serial killer, and then give you a ride... We all are family here aren't we? I would have to come up with some questions maybe we all can make up some questions to ask?

I guess it would also depend on where you are located?

I live in Southport, North Carolina. Its between Wilmington and Myrtle Beach.

I am and Eagle Scout. So as far as survival techniques and map orientation I'm proficient at both.

I'm also in good shape. I don't know if that has to do with anything but I exercise a lot and do not eat very much. I'm planning on hiking the Appalachian Trail next season so its sort of part of the preparation for that.

Google is your friend, might want to try it sometime ... LINK

STCW 95 refers to the 1995 amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).
