sailingdog Mark—

While the boat may or may not have a blog up... the fact that you don't mention what the blog's URL is one issue. I'd also point out that most of the sailors who post here on their first few posts, especially in a "looking for female crew", generally get hammered. You have no track record here and while I wish you the best in finding your crew, I'd be amiss if I didn't second CD's warning to women about checking things out thoroughly before FLYING TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY AND GETTING ON A BOAT WITH AN UNKNOWN PERSON.

Age 24, gender male, keen for get some sailingexperiences

Hi Mark,

i m 24, male, german fella and travelling is my passion. I dont have any experiences on sailing boats but would really love to learn a lot. My goal
is it to improve my language skills (they re quite good anyways), travel
for around half a year and above all i would love to learn how to sail! I travelled the world when i was 20, so i gained some experiences.
Social guy keen for a good time and don't mind hard work. Please don't be
scared of my "youth", i get along with most people so give me a chance?

would be nice to get a reply. best regards

imagine2frolic As for preference for females, I just tend to get along with them better.

Point well made.......LOLOLOLOL......i2f

it also goes the other way..

It also applies that one should check out the person joining a boat, since when you are at sea anything could happen.

I've had a blog up for the boat for the last 4 years now, and that is fairly easy to check out past history of the boat and it's owner. It's all fairly transparent and I would have more to lose than anyone coming on the boat.

As for preference for females, I just tend to get along with them better.

Cruisingdad I am going to sound like the typical dad here when I repsond, but so be it.

I hope that ANYONE, and thqat includes males but especially females, does a thorough background check on anyone they wish to crew with or for. Once you get on a boat, there is no getting off unless you can tread water a really, really, really long time and do not taste like seal.

There. I said my piece.

imagine2frolic GEE,

I wonder who will get picked. Especially after reading "obeying Captain's orders". Sounds like some knot lessons in Anges's future ......i2f

Sailing in Thailand

Hi Mark,
I very interested in joining your crew! I recently graduated from the University of Hawaii with a degree in Marine Biology and looking for my next new exciting adventure. I love anything to do with the water surfing, swimming, kite boarding, sailing or course, and I'm an experienced Scuba Divemaster. While I have little open water sailing experience I have a strong desire to learn and would love to have my own live aboard one day. At this moment in time I would be free to join your crew as early as January 7th or 8th. I look forward to hearing back from you!

Sailing with you from mid-December

Hi Mark,

I love sailing, swimming and snorkeling.
It would be great to join you for 2/4 weeks from mid-December up to mid-January.
I am good at steering and not bad at "obeying Captain's orders".
I've been travelling quite a lot and would love to discover new islands and new people.

My 45 ft catamaran (Lagoon 440), is now in Langkawi, and I'm probably going to head back to the boat in December or January and do some more sailing in around Phuket etc in the high season.

I'm looking for fun people to join me for sailing in the area, possibly out to the Similans, and if they are female then all the better... no sailing experience needed but ability to learn fast would be good...

I'm 45, fit and hope to stay that way for a while...

Shared food expenses only - everything else I pay for...and food in Thailand is generally cheap.

hope to hear from some adventurous souls.

AirWarrior Hey mark-
I might be what you're looking for. Not female but recent layoff victim and adventurous soul looking to learn a bit more about yachting. I've sailed my whole life and think I could be of help. May I have your email as well?
