I've posted my availability as an ocean passage delivery crew. I received today an email saying:
"Have a catalina 36ft sail boat leaving miami to bahamas/bermuda/azores/uk in around two weeks, if you are interested please email"
I responded asking for more details about boat, captain, crew and contract. I'm new to this crewing stuff and I was hoping my first bluewater would be something like a 2 week passage to/from Hawaii/W. Coast.
I live in Los Angeles and this would be a blind start for me in Miami.
By my guestimation (if all goes well) this would be about 32 days on the water and I think 2 or 3 days breather after each leg; something like May 27 to July 9 total (nothing goes all well).
It's a lot to consider and prepare for (logistically) in just 2 weeks and I can't really afford to many false starts or delays.
Is this schedule pushing it or am I just a big weeney?
I Sure could use an opinion out there.
