Experienced competent crew, freediver, PADI rescue for sailing, diving, filming adventures
I am looking for a youngish (even if at heart) active crew to join. Aside from sailing, I love diving snorkeling and hiking when cruising around and would love to join a crew with similar interests so we can do activities together.
Have and art degree and experience in filming and photography. If you have a youtube channel I can give you a good hand with that.
I would love to sail places like Pacific Ocean and French Polynesia, but with Covid restrictions, I keep myself flexible location wise to what is available/open.
A more detailed version below:
I am a responsible, grown up person with months of liveaboard experience and solo night watches, and giving a good hand in maintaining a boat and the fun on it. I know a boat is cruiser's home and I am respectful of space and rules, which I always ask ahead of about (usually in a video call). I like to sail with people I can make friends with and take care of their boats as they were mine.
Have 1800 miles and 140 days of total sailing experience, over a 100 hours of offshore night watches, most of it throughout the Mediterranean and some in South Africa (tidal, swell waters).
Have been scuba diving and free diving for a decade. I used to go help in diving centres during my university summer holidays for a couple of years.
Personality wise I am a kindhearted, emphatic, rational, proactive, positive attitude, adventurous, constant and fast learner, love being around people I can have a good chat with, love doing things that keep me inspired, humble.
Also, have experience in filming (including underwater), photography, visual arts, website making, diving industry as well as IT, design and marketing industries -- as I work in the last three for a living.
In normal life I am trying to be a reasonable healthy eater - love seafood, veggies, fruits, meats, I splurge on chocolate and a drink or two sometimes, but I can eat any diet when away from land and fresh produce. No food allergies.
Have lived at and traveled to many places around the world and have a diverse circle of friends, dive buddies, biz partners and whatnot from all sorts of nationalities (from US to Vietnam, you name it).
One of my dream adventures is a sailing/diving expedition with humpback whales.
When not near water, I love to go hiking, snowboarding, explore cultures, people and places, learn new things, etc.
While love can happen almost everywhere, it is still a rare chance, so please, if messaging me, do explicitly let me know what you are looking for in that regard and only do so if the age gap is not too significant (max 10 years). The rest is just not realistic.
I tried to keep this short. Please ask ahead everything you would like to know that I forgot to mention.
I have my own set of questions to you too (to figure out if I will fit there :))
