I'm Fred and I live on a beautiful, traditional wooden 82ft sailing ship. For 2020, I am staying in the south of Tenerife (Canary Islands) and looking for crew to help out with cleaning and maintenance.
About me: The canvas can do miracles… Christopher Cross sang about this in his song ‘Sailing’. And it is so true for me. While sailing I feel at peace with who and where I am. I flew helicopters, jumped out of airplanes, did meditation, Reiki and yoga, had several businesses, participated in seminars by some of the greatest minds of our times, followed the trails of ancient pilgrims, slept in monasteries and even spent nights alone in the Black Forrest. But nowhere do I get closer to my core as on the sea, surrounded by nothing but water. My hobbies are sailing, music, movies and cooking. I invite you to join me. See you on board!
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Living on board a wooden ship is a unique experience. You'll learn new skills and meet wonderful people. It's a memory for a lifetime.
I am looking for volunteers for cleaning, some cooking, shopping, dishes and maintaining (sanding and painting) the boat. If you have no skills yet, I am happy to teach you.
Social, open & friendly person.
Only solo Workawayers. No couples or duo's as this affects the energy on board.
3 weeks of commitment.
At least conversation level English. If you speak Spanish, that is a plus.
Preferable driving license as we have a van for groceries etc.
No vegans and special diets like gluten/lactose/nut free.
On board, there is a dedicated sleeping area for crew in the front of the ship. This Crew cabin consists of 2 x 2 bunk beds separated with curtains and with private bathroom (incl. toilet and shower), shared with other volunteers (same gender on each side). There are also showers and toilets on the shore nearby. Breakfast, lunch and dinner and drinks are free for volunteers. I can accommodate pescetarians and vegetarians, but unfortunately not vegans or people on a gluten/lactose/nut free diet.
There is enough to see in Tenerife. The airport is close.
