ahoi guys

i wanna go in august to south america and thought that the best experience would be to do that by boat. i am a strong woman who learns fast and is willing to learn. i love the ocean and the adventure. i am i good cook and dont mind to clean the boat. i wanna help as much as possible. would be great to find a nice crew and a boat which are keen to let me join to that trip! looking forward to the posts

August is during the hurricane season, so normally a boat would not sail through that area until late November.
good luck

Nope. the other issue is a north-flowing current. This year I am in the Caribbean. Next year, don't know yet.
