When you crewed, were you able to work a p/t position if you wanted to? Was the business level sufficient enough to allow saving decent $$$? Did you need to get US Sailing certified? Would you try a trans-pacific or Trans-atlantic on a 30" sailboat? What brand would be an inexpensive yet strong blue-water boat. Oh, I could pick your mind... :0) Anything on planet Earth you can tell me about sailing would be much appreciated. Gracias
I am thinking of taking sailing lessons this summer with the goal of eventually buying a single-hand blue water boat for long-distance cruising (New Zealand, Micronesia, and eventually Alaska where I will settle).
Can you throw me any info on being crew? Does a person make a decent living? Would it even help in achieving those goals? I have friends in Alaska who are live-aboards and it seems to be an excellent way to travel and live inexpensively at the same time. Thanx for any help :0)
