Looking for a Competent Crew, Voluntary work or Friendship position
Hi - I've just joined Crewbay. I love exploring the world on a sail boat and am looking for sailing opportunities with open minded, friendly people. I have been sailing since the age of 15 on all sorts of boats. I did my German licenses when I was 16 so a while back. I've then worked as a sailing instructor during school and uni holidays, done a couple of yacht transfers, sailed on the tall ship Alexander von Humboldt and ended up racing mid size and small boats (505) in the Berlin and Baltic sea region (had to stop doing that when I moved to Cologne 6 years ago). I have done several trips (20+) as a watch keeper (but a while back, keep that in mind!) and also participated in a three weeks yacht race on the Baltic sea (the Baltic Sprint Cup) in 2009. I have done a one-week skipper training on Elba in 2016 but always found it too stressful to be a captain myself. I got seasick one or two times in very bad weather, but not for long. I am a lawyer living in Cologne, but since I'm my own boss, I am pretty flexible in terms of time-off and I can also work from almost anywhere provided I have internet connection. I like cooking and I'm a social person with positive energy.
