Competent Sailing Crew Services

During the past three and a half winters I have spent a total of 10 months living and assisting on sailboats in Panama, Belize, Grenada, Florida, and the Eastern Caribbean and have well over 1000nm of crew experience. In the 2019-2020 season I crewed on a sailboat traveling to many countries between Guadeloupe and the USVI for 5 months. I am currently in the Florida Keys and am interested in sailing in the Eastern Caribbean, or to Mexico or Belize this season.

I own a 22' sailboat, which I sail in lakes in the summer in Northern California. I have many skills to offer between my experiences as a sailor, diver, mother, teacher, property and sailboat owner, yoga and swimming instructor, seamstress, whole-foods cook for my friends and family, and host for my hostel guests. I am creative, resourceful, self-reliant, easy-going and on a mission to create mutually beneficial experiences.

I have been a certified scuba diver since I was 13 and I am traveling with my own BC/regulator this season. I am very interested in sea life and coral reef ecology and love sharing what I know and learn.

I am an excellent swimmer, healthy cook, know CPR/first aid/herbal remedies, and am great with all kinds of people.I can also offer my services as a homeschool teacher, yoga & swimming instructor, deck hand, friend, and companion. I am a valuable, attentive, hard-working, joyful member of any team!

I teach yoga and swimming lessons and enjoy playing guitar, ukulele, and the handpan. I am passionate about swimming, studying reef creatures, scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, going into small villages and getting to know locals and their customs! I eat a pretty simple and healthy sugar-free & grain-free diet, but I am willing to cook things I'm not eating for my crew. I am happy to buy my own food and I always show up with some provisions.

I am interested in finding some work on a sailboat, but it is not necessary either. I have no intention of going back to my teaching job and I freelance to earn some money when I can. - I love living on the water.

Thanks for considering me.
