Madalyn Freedman

Hello Tall Ship Community,

    My name is Madalyn Freedman. I am a tall ship sailor from the United States and I am looking for opportunities to work and sail abroad.  I am currently traveling since I finished a contract as a deckhand on the schooner Virginia, and my schedule is open for anything, anywhere, starting in March or later.  I enjoy working with people of all ages, as a deckhand, a steward, or an assistant cook! (I have only unofficial experience helping out in the galley, but I do love it, crazy as that sounds.) I would prefer paid work, but I may be open to volunteering if food and lodging are available on board.  Below are my CV and a photo taken during downrigging this past November .  Thank you for your time and consideration.

Fair Winds!
