So when I was planning my trip to europe last year, I heard that people will hire you to help on their boat in exchange for free passage for you to their destination. For example, crossing the atlantic... I have always had the dream of living on a sailboat and touring along the coast of the americas, but only have a moderate amount of experience, mostly on small daysailors. I thought this would be a great way to learn more about sailing and save me a wad of cash in airfare. It turned out that because I was leaving in the fall, most boats were on their way west, having crossed east in the spring. My girlfriend and I are now thinking about doing a crossing next spring, and I'm wondering if any of you have done it, either on a sailboat or a yacht. On a broader note, after looking around on the net a bit, there seemed to be boats going EVERYWHERE. Though I haven't done much looking yet for this trip, I thought others might be interested.
Let there be adventure.
