Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a sailing opportunity/crew position that will take me across the Atlantic Ocean. I have experience, and can contribute $ toward essential expenses (such as food/water fuel etc.)
This is my situation, and any constructive input is welcome (key word constructive):
I am available starting in May-until Nov. I am currently located in New Orleans, however I am happy to travel to Florida or the Caribbean for the best option when it comes to finding a boat. I've been in contact with some boat owners, and trying to get my ducks in a row, but if I can not get something lined up via the internet and skype interviews, is it smarter to head to the Keys, or is there specific island port in the Caribbean where it's common to find crew positions on boats heading across the Atlantic? Any tips on where I can find a position on someone's boat? I also want to stay respectful and not assume any entitlement in my search for a work-ride. I'm flexible and easy going, but feeling a tad anxious as the months tick away. I don't want to get left behind!
That's all. Thanks ya'll.
