The crew would be expected to CONTRIBUTE??? WTF??? Contribute what? To pay for the upkeep of the boat? To pay for the food they're going to eat??? Last I checked, most UNPAID crew positions at least had the captain FEEDING THE CREW.
From the OP's website:
Perhaps this is your opportunity to accumulate miles and Blue Water experience this year.
I will also need to know your availability and the longest passages you are willing to consider.
Tuition can be arranged for all levels if required and tailored to your needs.
WTF... if you're crewing, why are you required to pay... he's making money from doing the delivery... and supplying the crew... so, why is the crew required to pay to work their asses off...
Crew would be expected to watchkeep, take turns at cooking, boat maintenance and would be expected to contribute.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
