I'm looking for opportunity to join the private yacht cruise across the Pacific ocean.
I've been sailing since 2008. My first boat was a 30-meters-long historic wooden fregate "Shtandart" (www.shtandart.com). She was not just a school of navigation, much more - a school of life.
We sailed the Baltic, Norwegian and Northern seas.
Later I joined a leg of round-the-world journey on a 36ft private yacht. In 5 months we made our way from Italy to Brazil; from Canaries to Brazil - in a crew of two. I lived on board for almost a year and quite enjoyed this lifestyle. I wrote about our crossings and life on board in my blog follow-wind.com
I'll be glad to share more information about myself if you're interested : )
Conditions and dates can be discussed - I'm flexible.

I need some aditional crew in order to sail to Svalbard this summer.
Departure date i 11 june from Senja, North Norway (nearest airport is Tromso or Bardufoss)
Crew change in Longyearbyen around 30 june and returning to Senja around 14-16 july.
We share expences on food and fuel, and an aditional fee for the ship is 70 euro per day.
The vessel is a 38 fot Malo 116 with three cabins, diesel oven, and all you need to live comfortably onboard. The last year I have invested alot in safety equipment with a new 6p liferaft, EPIRB and a satelite phone
I also have a radar, AIS receiver and two different chartplotters and paper charts.
To be a part of the crew you need to be able to live close to other people for a long time, cooping with having freezing ocean in all directions. Be a cheerful person and have a positive atitude. And sailer experience

Dear Sea Gypsies,
Spring is slowly coming our way, Its been maybe the coldest winter for
as long as people can remember up here. Minus -30 for weeks out and
weeks for january and february and even in march we have -20 degrees
for many days. But we dont complain (at least loudly!) the shed was
filled to the brink with firewood and during evening and weekends time
have been spent reading about small pacific islands where the sun
always shine... Guess where to boat is sailing!
Last two months have been spent doing foundry work (melting
aluminium). We are now making our own portholes and all small bits and
pieces out of the all the scrap alloy we have floating around. Next
would be to make a few dolphins for decoration :-)
Anyway, enjoy the early spring folks! .. and if you want to join our
tribe please contact us!

There's a group of us sailing to / camping on Lady Musgrave Island over Easter 2013 for 7 nights, and would like some one to help out with organising the food (making a menu, coordinating supplies during the trip, etc). There's enough people to share the actual cooking and cleaning, so shouldn't be too hectic!
If you have some experience in hospitality and are keen, we'll cover all expenses in exchange for you taking control of the food coordination. Get in touch and I'll give you more details in regards to numbers and how best to get you to the island!
Looking for some fun crew to sail from Mexico, la Paz, to panama or further.
Message me for more info.
There are places on a tall ship adventure for voyage crew (no experience needed) sailing from Santos in Brazil to Cape Town 31st March 2013 - it takes 35 days. I did it in 2011 from North Africa to Salvador and it is absolutely amazing. They train you as you go and everyone is hands on deck getting the sail ship across. Ours was a 100 year old traditional vessel and absolutely beautiful. It was like being a part of history at sea. I can send details of the ship if you want to get in touch with them to ask about bunks...
I have three months off: June - August. Would love to spend this time rediscovering the sports I loved as a child, sailing and windsurfing. Does anyone know of any great places that I could do some courses in ? In Ireland I've heard of people working in the centre for free for a summer in exchange for courses. This would be great. I'm based in Ireland so would like to go foreign somewhere. Russia would be great but any coastal skipper courses I've found are run in Russian. My Russian is pretty bad. Could understand a course in Spanish or English.
Any help would be appreciated!
My friend is a Palestine living in West Bank
And can she apply for a job at the cruiser ship?
she holds West Bank Palestine passport.
If yes do you know any company in Hebron that recruiters workers for cursers.
I know this is the travelling forum
But I did not know where to ask.
Thank you for a replay or any direction where to ask
Some like minded individuals and myself have taken up the o' so noble title of nomad. We live on the eastern side of North America and were curious as to any travel by boat (any sort) that would get us to Iceland, Ireland, or Europe in general from either the eastern side where we are located or from Canada. Any shared wisdom is very much appreciated.
