Travel for free by crewing

Fancy trying out a bit of cruising on a small personal boat without buying one?

Find a crew is a great web site where boat owners advertise for crew and crew advertise to find a boat.  You can sign up for free.

There are paid, unpaid and contribution positions.

Skilled, unskilled and just companions required.

Durations from 1 week to 1 year plus.

Boats of all shapes and sizes.

Within 3 days of placing a post we have found ourselves a catamaran travelling up the coast of Australia from May to September.

The owner wants companions and is happy to teach us sailing skills whilst we help out where needed and pay for food a drink. So this summer we will be cruising around the Whitsunday Islands, how cool is that?
