Competent crew with aptitude and willing for sailing and find a job in Caribbean

I’m a designer and eco builder from Portugal and I have discovered this new dream of sailing very recently in Panama :))
Right now I’m in Mindelo, Cape Verde, on the way to cross the Atlantic, arriving in Grenada beginning of January. I’m hoping to find a job in boats/charters. My second plan is to find a boat to keep on sailing towards Panama and keep getting more experience.
I’m a very easy going person, very flexible and good sense of humor. Besides all my experience on boats, have launched around 2000NM (plus the Atlantic cross, 2500NM more) I have loads of experience on traveling and contacting with different cultures and I do speak English, Spanish, French, Italian and of course portuguese...
I can cook delicious healthy food based on veggies and fish (meat also) and love preparing gourmet dishes :)) I’m good with hands (designer, architect, carpenter, builder, bamboo lover) and multi tasking, as I am bamboo builder I also know a lot about knots, cables and hardware , and I’m very well organized and cleanliness ;) Anything your boat needs to be fixed (carpentry, plumbing and some electrics) I have handy skills if you provide me the right tools :))

I love nature and the sea! Love to be surrounded by fun and adventure! As an experienced traveler, I’m very flexible to adapt to different people, places and situations.

I wish we can have a chat and see how plans for sailing can match :))
I’m willing to Enjoy your traveling and life at sea ⛵️

Sailing from Algarve to Madeira


Mafalda is a very nice open minded girl with a lot of traveling experience and is traveling with light luggage and took care on my boat. She sailed with me about 2weeks on my 10m Bruce Roberts along the Algarve and crossed with me from Portimão to Porto Santo and then to Madeira. She did night watches and handelt the sails on my boat. She is also a very good vegetarian and seafood cook. I liked also to explore the islands with her and I enjoyed her company. I would always sail again with her and hope to do so somewhen.
