My name is Sassy. I'm new to this community and just wanted to say hi. I also had a sailing question.
I've been sailing recreationally for a few years now in Long Beach, CA. And would like to increase my knowledge by becoming part of a crew.
How does someone like me, with limited experience, become a crew member? Does anyone know of places that offer sailing jobs, or jobs at marinas? Any tips, pointers, suggestions about beginning a career at sea?
I've read on here a few places that offer seasonal jobs and plan to check them out. I was wondering if anyone had any new news on sailing opportunities.
My dream would be to make a living, crewing full time on a ship. But I wouldn't mind working part time or maybe volunteering. (Shoot, I wouldn't even mind getting a job on a cruise ship for a spell.) Working at a marina, in the office or even at a maritime museum would be nice, too. And I don't mind traveling. I've got my passport ready!
