Atlantic Crew Survey
Hello Sailors!

Thank you for taking your time to check this out!

I'm Suz, big oceanlover and I recently arrived on the other side from my 3rd Atlantic crossing. During these trips 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 & journey which I'll be publishing into a book. No one should give up this dream! Therefore i'm doing some research amongst both captains and boat seekers. I'd love to hear from you as crew about your search and Atlantic Ocean experience.

Would you like to help and answer a few questions? If there's questions you rather no 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! If you like to get notified when it's released, you can leave your email in the survey or on

Ahoy! Suzanne
