Want to join crew to south america, peru specifically

Hi im a young Canadian looking to join a sailing trip to south america, peru specifically from vancouver or northern us in the spring/summer of 2012. I have just recently returned from a trip to New Zealand. Im originally form Calgary alberta where there is no ocean so after being in New zealand i really want to be near the ocean. In the fall of next year ill be attending a tourism management course at vancouver island university. I don't have any experience sailing but i am really keen to learn and i figure what better way to learn. I am a quick learner and always ready to help in any situation. I hope someone has a opening on a ship with a open space.

I don't think you will find people going to Peru although you might find someone going to Ecuador, but much more likely from Panama than BC. As you might expect ocean currents, and prevailing winds pretty much dictate where you can go and when. Once you get much south of Panama you have the Humboldt Current coming against you all the way down the South American coast. You can push against until about Guayaquil but that is about it. Also there are precious few harbors or anchorages in Peru. If people want to do the coast of SA they would typically go to Easter Island from the Galapagos (a long way west but it gets you away from the Humboldt and is worth the visit). Then they would go to somewhere on the coast of Chile. From here you can go south towards Tierra del Fuego or turn left and go northward up the coast. Often in sailing, the shortest distance is not the fastest (or most comfortable) way. In total, the number of boats doing this is quite small. Not sure of the number but a guess would be 10 to 20 and most would have their crew arrangements in place.
