Ahoy from TN newbie :)

Hey all... I'm a novice sailor from TN, U.S., looking to learn more! Hoping for unpaid crew position w/ experienced captain/skipper, sailing from east/southeast coast of U.S. to Columbia or Venzuela, etc. Yes, I know - it's a long & grueling trip, but I love sailing, I'm a hard worker, & don't mind bad weather/adversity... see my profile for more info... want to see S.A. & maybe relocate there (& continue sailing when I get there!). Please help me out with any & all suggestions for ways to do this on a small budget! Info of any kind is deeply appreciated (as long as it's courteous ! )! Thanks, & happy sailing!

Re: Ahoy from TN newbie :)

You'll love the northern coast of Venezuela. We stopped there on a detour from Trinidad and had a memorable stay. Lots of nooks and crannies along a rocky mountainous coast. Took a bath in a freshwater spring that drained into the sea and ate fresh lobster that night. Had to borrow a speargun from a French sailing family and used a lot of sign language to get our point across. We saw only one other boat in 2 days. You'll never forget that trip. Hope you can hook up with a ride soon. Good luck to ya'. Bruce
