where can i find

I am A powerboater and have been for 20 years. I am thinking of selling the boat and buying a 25'-30' sailboat. I was wondering if anybody had any advice on how I could hookup with someone to do a cruise for 2-5 days to see if this is what I really want. I am a 42 year old hard worker and don't mind sharing expenses. I have looked at a few crew boards and I don't want to sail a month or fly to a different country. If anyone has any thoughts or opinions bad or good let me know. Thanks

Keep watching the forums. There are people looking for short term crew all the time. The length of the trip and the area to be sailed are in the listing. Welcome to a new, and better, way to enjoy your time on the water.

I'm not sure that going on a cruise without knowing what you are doing is going to be useful. It will be impossible to know if what you experience is normal. I suggest going away for a week to a live aboard bare boat certification class. You will both learn to sail and know whether you want to continue.

Minnies advice is good advice....take a good sailing course where you are onboard for a week. That will give a better indication of what to experience in owning a sailboat

After the sailing course why not charter a boat somewhere warm this Winter? That may give you a better idea of the lifestyle.
