Europe isn't the best place to be this time of year as most yachts are mid crossing or already over in the Carib. If you can, get over there. Antigua, Fort Lauderdale maybe even St Maarten. There are still some jobs in europe but the boats won't be going anywhere. Good luck

Hi everyone! Im doing the same thing, but i left italy for comin here in ft lauderdale confident that i could find something,but i m recognizing is not easy for newbie, i have all documents needed but agencies do not care about me because don't have a 6 months or one year previous experience. Someone knows what else i could do? I m walkin around trying to know how to move in the best way to find a job. I'm a deck cadet. Availabilty and motivation are very high as you can see from the fact that i come in florida with a 11 hours flight without anything in my hands,but still nothing after two weeks. I also signed at daywork 1 2 3, any suggestions? Thanks very much everyone
