Maybe I can help you
Hi, I am registered in a big german speaking sailing-forum and there are some people looking for crew (non commercial), right now. I have only one problem: being a new member I´m not so familiar with communication tools used in SailNet to install direct connection immediately.
I could only try to invite these people to visit your post and answer to it directly. But for doing so I should know when you want to travel. Your post is already one week old - maybe you left in the meantime? If not please give information about the dates of your vacation.

Greetings + Holland, Denmark question
I've been sailing for 3 years and belong to a club on the Chesapeake.
I've been meaning to become involved here for some time, but for now there's a specific issue I want to address, so forgive me for cutting to the chase.
I suddenly find myself with two weeks off -- and unexpectedly alone. I've been thinking of visiting some friends in Northern Europe.
Here's the question: Does anyone know of a sailing tour, or sailing school that offers *participatory* sailing around Denmark or Holland, perhaps passage from one to the other. I've seen these sort of pay-to-crew options offered here in the states but don't know where to look abroad.
Or -- anyone know people sailing in that area who wouldn't mind an extra hand?
I would rate my skills as low-intermediate. Coursework through ASA 104. Sailed in the Chesapeake, BVIs and Santa Monica Bay. No overnight passages yet.
Thanks so much for any advice you can offer.
