Summary

Summary

Born to Sail covers everything from how to abandon your landlubber style, to how to find a boat to crew on, to what to wear & what to eat. This is a guide for sailing enthusiasts, or potential sailing enthusiasts, who do not own a sailboat but desire to spend a summer, a year or a lifetime sailing. Here you will find all the information you need on how to become a responsible crewmember & when, where & how to find crewing positions in various ports around the world. There is an ongoing need for good crew. Many 'boat bunnies' are interested in free passage & find plenty of captains willing to take them on board-until they foul up the plumbing, destroy the electronics & alienate qualified crewmembers. Born to Sail will help you to avoid these pitfalls & enjoy the sailing lifestyle for as long as you wish.
