I'm a 41-year-old male. Been traveling since the age of 17 I don't have any sailing experience. But, I'm eager to learn. I'm interested in joining a boat as a crew-member. Preferably something long-term (at least 2 or 3 months, but preferably up to 1 or 2 years) About me : born and raised in Helsinki, Finland. Been traveling since the age of 17. By profession, I'm a Software Engineer. Been doing this for 18 years now. I love nature. I love the outdoors. Most of all, though, I love to travel. I've been to a lot of places (a few times for work, but mostly for fun and sight-seeing). I've been all over North, South, and Central America, Europe, China, India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, South Korean, Singapore, Japan, and Australia. I am also yet to explore some a few other places in Asia, but that's in the works :) My second-favorite hobby is cooking. International cuisine is my passion. I love to be creative in the kitchen. :=)) My favorite cuisine is Asian. In particular, Thai and Korean (last year, I spent 3 months in Korea, learning how to cook their dishes. I couldn't get enough of it :)) I speak 5 languages: English, French, Russian, Finnish and Spanish.

I saw your ad and wanted to see if I could help, directly or otherwise.

Please tell me a bit about yourself and why you are sailing. I am curious to know the base reason for your interest in sailing. I am quite serious in my interest as I am abandoning industrialized society for a self-sufficient and rather privileged life aboard my very large motorsailer, but do keep up with the more casual sailing community and may be able to point you in the right direction.

If our interests are similar, I can probably help more directly if you are interested in learning from the ground up as I am in the process of completing preparations on my ship.

I look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to email me directly at
