I am in Treasure Cay, Abaco right now, on the web looking for rides/charters around here, and had thought of crewing to get some blue-water experience, having sailed Georgian Bay (Great Lakes) for decades, and chartered both here and BVIs. But I ain't no ship's cook, I am afraid, and I do recall having once been seasick in a storm-induced following, wallowing sea on my uncle's Formosa 51 in the Med as a kid (otherwise it was a great ride through the Greek Isles).
This is not right at the tip-top of my priority list right now, but it's certainly tempting, and I do have the time. Hmmn.
In case no one turns up, or if you think this is the perfect opportunity for a fit and active (just got back from skiing BC, and I club-race a Laser) 49-year-old to see if he has blue-water sea legs, my gmail account is jbbacque (at) gmail (dot) com.
Good luck, and I'll run this one past the 'mate in the meantime...
