Sailboat culture is much broader than we imagine and is increasingly on the rise. In the world of sailing there are three very common forms of travel, they are:

  • Traveling as a tourist: you pay a price per day and enjoy all the comforts of the trip effortlessly.
  • Traveling as a hitchhiker: the captain seeks company for the trip and also someone to help with day-to-day tasks, such as cleaning and cooking during the trip. In this one you pay nothing, but you also don't receive money for the exchange.
  • Traveling as an employee: the captain hires you as an employee, vacancies may vary depending on the type of trip and vessel.

One of the ways to find vacancies to work on board on boat trips, is the social network Find a Crew, in Portuguese “find a crew”, the initiative seeks to connect boat owners with people interested in work on board, traveling as an employee or as a ride. On the site there is a free registration option, where there are some limitations to contact vacancies and another premium option, where contact with boat owners is made by direct message. However, even in the free option it is possible to find an opportunity, just create your profile and send alerts for the vacancies of interest. The social network is only in Italian and English, but it is very intuitive.

In Brazil the site sail Brazil, one of the biggest on sailboats and boats, has a category that works the same way, intermediating boat owners with people who want to be crew and travel by hitchhiker. The site is completely free and you can register your interest in the crew of classifieds.
