Looking for a boat: Europe => Central or South America
Posted May 2nd, 2013 - 1:57 pm by from Lommel, Belgium (Permalink)
Dear shipmates,

I would like to join a boat which sets sail in Europe and heads to South or Central America.
Currently I'm living in Belgium. I can leave from July 2013.
I'm going to work on a charity project in Peru, Chincha. I can go there whenever I want, preferably I would like to arrive in South America in 2013.

Experience:

I've spent one week on the ocean thus far.
My first trip was a delivery along the east coast of Australia from Lizard Island to the Whitsundays (500 nm). I worked as a deckhand on a 49ft Jeanneau. My tasks included sailing, night-watch, cleaning and cooking.
My second trip was a short one from the Whitsundays to Bowen.
During these amazing trips, I learned the sailing basics and experienced the feeling of being on the open ocean for 5 days in a row in both calm and rough conditions.

Some words about myself:

I'm a happy 27 year old Belgian guy :)
I'm just back from a half year travelling in Australia and New Zealand, which was fantastic!
Before that, I worked three years as a sports teacher in highschool.
I would consider myself as positive, enthousiastic and reliable.
As my interests are broad, I have good conversations with most people on this planet :)

I'm now ready for the ultimate adventure: an ocean crossing to South America !

If you might have an interesting offer, don't hesitate to contact me!

Best regards
Wannes
