We have been sailing around the world for the last 6 years and still going strong. On our trips we invite people from all over the world to join us on our adventures. A normal trip is between 1 to 3 months long. We are now in need of a pair of extra helping hands that wants to sail with us on these trips.

For year 2019 and 2020 we have the following trip planned:

1. Caribbean to Colombia - april 2019
2. San Bas Islands - June to nov 2019
3. Panama. Costa Rica, Mexico and Sea of Cortez - November 2019
4- Mexico - Galapagos - French Polynesia April 2020

When we started this alternative lifestyle we were only 2, now we are 4 (2 kids) and we need a pair of extra hands on the boat to help out out with the boat and our guesting crew members. We are therefore looking for an adventure seeking traveler that wants to join us and help out for these trips..

Girl, boy, man or female- sex doesn’t matter the important thing is that you are willing to learn, hard working when needed, have an solid interest in travelling, sports and are good with kids. Your social kids will be out on a test so they better be good! To be 8 people on a sailing boat for 8 weeks can be challenging sometimes but you for sure have a whole bunch of unforgettable experiences.

Sailing skills is not needed- if you are willing to learn- YOU WILL BECOME A GOOD SAILOR

Sp what do we need help with? Sailing, Boat maintenance, cleaning, cooking and sometimes with the kids. Don’t get me wrong here- you are not the only one doing these things- we are all part of it.

We tend to focus on the traveling part more than on the actual sailing even if we are doing many many miles! We offer our guests Paddle boarding, scuba diving, free diving, fishing and spear fishing so its a plus if you are up for some of these activities. We also try to explore what. Is on land as much as we possible can between the sailing legs. After all- thats whats life is all about.

sbaydreamer - this looks like it might result in a business transaction although it doesn't appear to be a commercial enterprise. Please read the forum rules about this sort of this and about posting personal details.

I am leaving it as it is since it might interest some of our members (I quite fancy it myself but some of us have to work!) but it may be deleted by our more senior administrators. Good luck in your quest for crew.

How can this not be an ad? They've been travelling for six years but need unexperienced crew? We closed out a couple who just wanted to show us their travel vids. Anyway, I call BS

Well, got shut down from that....But, then, let's respond to the question.....

....hmm, can't even find a question mark. Oh, but I see we get to have questions answered for US at clipped sites. Man, I'd love to BECOME A GOOD SAILOR. This is an ad.

You might go to the SSCA website and post there. I'm not sure where you are now or what kind of boat you have that would have room for extra crew, but that would be important to me if I was interested. I would want to know where you had been for the past 6 years.

Also I don't know what you are going to do in the San Blas Islands for 6 months. It's out of the hurricane zone I guess but I don't think there is enough to keep you busy and supplied for 6 months

We have been in the Mediterranean sea, Caribbean, south America and all over the Pacific and Asia. This is our second boat and yes we are planning to enjoy life in San Blas during the Hurricane season. You have plenty of provisioning both in Panama and Colombia.

I think it is unlikely that anyone on this website is going to be willing or able to join you. Most of these people are land based. There are older people like me who are past the time of life when we could just up and go sailing, and the younger ones are going to be back-packing around Asia.

So you mean the younger generation wouldn't wanna set sail and experience the life on the sea?
Nature, adventure, sports and traveling - who wouldn't wanna do that when they are young?

I dont belive you :-)

By younger generation, I mean people in their 30s and 40s. People the ages of my grandchildren. They have jobs and homes and sometimes children. The ones younger than that are still in school and not on this website much.

I'm 81 so all those people are younger to me. I have lived on a boat. My husband wanted to sail out to Bermuda and down to the Caribbean. But we were in our early 60s when we were living on the boat. I liked living on the boat, but it wasn't as much fun after my husband had a heart attack at an uninhabited cay in the Bahamas.
