How I crewed on sailboats in Mexico
Posted May 4th, 2013 - 9:01 pm by from Oaxaca de Juarez, Mexico (Permalink)
A bit late in posting this. I crewed on sailboats in Mexico a couple years ago. I tried finding things online but in the end the only thing that worked was just going down there.

I made a short video of my story. I hope you watch it and it helps you go out and find your own adventures. PM me if you have any questions.

Wow,

This is awesome. I gotta give you props man. What an great story and I watched your entire video. Very inspiring. Your travels look awesome and I am looking to get out of the country and travel some more extensive paths. My brother Adam, his dog Rosie and I have been backpacking the road for several months in the states so it has been a learning experience but I hope to get out beyond the states. I have been in touch with a couple people about sailing during the travels, and after crewing for a couple races on my uncle's boat last summer I itch to get back on the water.

Did you fly down to Mexico then when you went to find a boat?
Also, have you come across people who have taken their dogs on when crewing?

Talk with you soon. Do you do anything involving sailing nowadays?

Take care,
Alex

Hey Alex,
Thanks for watching it :)

Yeah, I flew down to PV and started there. I haven't seen people crewing with their dogs. To be honest, I think that would probably prevent you from getting a lot of boats.


I kind of fell off sailing since moving to San Francisco (and I really don't know why). I really enjoy it but I just have so many things to do on weekends here. I still have my gear so I'm sure I'll get back into it eventually...
