Atlantic Ocean Captain Survey
Hello Captain!

Thank you for taking your time to check this out!

I'm Suz, big oceanlover and I recently arrived in the Caribbean from my third sailing trip across the Atlantic Ocean. During this trip I've seen many boat and crew seekers struggling finding their boat/crew match, myself included. I'd like to help the next round of passage makers with some tips for the search, preparation and journey, which I'll be publishing as a book. Therefore i'm doing some research amongst both captains and boat seekers. I'd love to hear from you as a captain about dealing with crew for the Atlantic Crossing.

Would you like to help and answer a few questions? If there's questions you rather not answer, no worries. Your answers will stay fully anonymous, unless you indicate otherwise. It'll take you a few minutes only.

THANK YOU for your contribution!

Ahoy! Suzanne
