Julian Sauer (29/09/15)
I'm a 22 year-old graduate student from Germany and I'm currently travelling in Australia.
My dream for the moment would be to become a crew and volunteer on a yacht or sailing boat. So if you need someone, helping to deliver a boat from Melbourne to Western Australia, preferably Perth, that would be awesome.
I'm not the the most experienced sailor but last year, I went on a sailing trip on a 15 meters yacht in Germany for one week and I really enjoyed it and learned a lot already. I also have basic knowledge about weather and wind conditions because I took several courses in wind surfing.
Please call me 0401555040 if there's any boats searching for a willing worker.
