About me
Hola!
My name is Suzanne. I have one calling: the ocean! I'm Suz and I'm super excited to explore the nature and adventure sport potential of the seas. I'm a DIY oceanographer and oceanexplorer, learning about the seas through sailing, kitesurfing and freediving. I live the nomad lifestyle as an location independent entrepreneur working on ocean related sustainability and adventure projects. I hop from coastal town, to boats, to islands, back to boats again. Lending a hand wherever I can.

I did 2 Atlantic crossings last year as competent crew and I'm currently writing a book to help other to the same, most meaningful way. I have sailed on +15 different yachts and cannot wait to be on a boat again. I don't have any qualifications but I'm looking to get my offshore sailing license in September. I did make the miles:) I have a versatile and easy-going personality. A positive attitude, ability to learn, good health, calmness in difficult situations and drive to help in all areas, sailing, cooking & maintenance make me all-round crew member. I speak fluent Dutch, English and Spanish and a little French and German. I don't smoke, eat vegetarian and prefer to eat vegan.

I hope to raise awareness about living adventurously, following passion, and ocean conservation. Learn more about me on TheOceanpreneur.com. End of August I organize a big sailing flotilla in the Ionion, Greece themed Adventure & Social Entrepreneurship (TheInspirates.CO)

Currently most interested to hear about sailing opportunities:
- Bodrum / Datcha area Turkey, July & August
- Turkey - Greece in August anywhere westwards.
- Lefkada Greece - Sicily / Sardinia September 2016
- Rome - Sardinia - September 2016
- Sardinia September 2016
- Sardinia - Spain/Palma/Gibraltar end of September 2016
- Palma de Mallorca - Gibraltar/Tarifa end of September
- Spain (or Turkey) - Canary Islands Oktober/November/December 2016.
- November /December: Atlantic Ocean!
- 2017: Caribbean & Pacific?

May you have a completely different schedule/route but awesome mindset, boat and plan around adventure, kitesurfing, freediving, sustainability and a healthy lifestyle, don't hesitate to contact me!

Besides being a capable and experienced crew member I am happy to assist in all onboard duties. Additionally I can help out with greening your boats, cleaning the hull, painting, (underwater) photography, video, (online) marketing, websites, blogging, social media, spanish, freediving (I’m a AIDA qualitfied instructor), kitesurfing, organizing stuff or other skills that you may be in need of where I can help out!

A win win win? Ahoy!

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website.
