Re: Crew/Captain Wanted - Charleston, SC to Nassau (Paid)

I write to you today to express my interest in your trip from South Carolina to the Bahamas. While I don't have a "resume," I have outlined my experience below. I do possess both a 50 ton Master's license, with Sailing and Towing Endorsements, and an Ordinary Seaman (OS) MMD. I have a TWIC card as well.

My father first took me sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, out of Middle River, when I was 6 weeks old; I have been sailing ever since. When I was 8, I began racing on both small boats (dinghies), and Keel Boats. My keel boat racing experience includes a Cal 2-30, C&C 33, Express 35, J/22, J/24, J/29, J/30, J/35, J/42, Melges 24, Merit 25, Navy 44, and a Santa Cruz 70. My dinghy experience includes Lasers, 420s, 470s, JY15s, Thistles, and Optimists. I have done many distance races, including the Round Block Island Race and Vineyard race, both in 2008.

I have been cruising my entire life. My cruising experience includes a Pearson Ariel (similar to a Pearson Triton, only smaller), a Morgan 30, Jeanneau 35, Cal 2-27, Beneteau 35.7, and currently a Bayfield 32. I have sailed offshore many times, including a trip in November 2008 from Annapolis, Maryland to St. Maarten, in the Caribbean. In June 2010, I sailed from Tortola to Providence, RI, via Bermuda, aboard a Caliber 37. I also skippered a Pearson 36 Cutter from Annapolis to Bermuda in November 2011.

I began coaching sailing and racing when I was 13- in 2001. I have been teaching junior sailors every summer since then, teaching everything from 8 year old beginners (kids who have never set foot on a boat) to 16 year olds in advanced racing. I have taught at the Baltimore County Sailing Center for 7 summers (Baltimore County Sailing Center - Home), and in 2008 taught at the Tred Avon Yacht Club, in Oxford, Maryland (tayc.com). I have taught Ideal 18s, Rainbows, 420s, Lasers, Optis, and Hunter Xcites. Last summer I taught sailing aboard Lasers, Opti's, and Rainbows at YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, where I continued to teach school groups and private groups canoeing and team building activities through December. I am a Small Boat Level 1 Sailing Instructor through US Sailing, and am also a Maryland Certified EMT and Firefighter.

I wonder if my qualifications meet your requirements. Should you require more information, I can be reached via email (captcore (at) gmail (dot) com).

Thanks in advance.

Re: Crew/Captain Wanted - Charleston, SC to Nassau (Paid)

Hi,

I would be interested in helping. I have experience in blue water trips and in teaching. I have a diverse background with not only sailing but electrical, electronic and basic mechanical repairs on diesel motors etc. I agree with the other posters that point out an adequate crew is important, with that said I have helped move medium to large sailing vessels (40-60+ft) over medium to long distances (Miami to New Orleans- Miami to the Panama Canal) with small in-experienced crews (not my first choice but...). If you still need hands and want to talk drop me a note. Good luck and safe voyages!

I am an able bodied 28 year old male. Boat has been worked on a decent amount recently and has no major functional issues and is completely sail worthy to the best of my understanding.

Will pay for all food, flight back from Bahamas and a negotiable salary per day. You are also welcome to take the price of the flight in cash and stay in the Bahamas if you wanted to.

You must be extremely knowledgeable with all respects to sailing: How-to, explaining, maintenance etc. I'm extremely easy to get along with and am looking for someone friendly as well.

Re: Crew/Captain Wanted - Charleston, SC to Nassau (Paid)

I'm really interested in this trip, if you haven't done it yet. What time frame are you looking at?

While I don't have a "resume," I have outlined my experience below. I do possess both a 50 ton Inland Master's license, with Sailing and Towing Endorsements, and an Ordinary Seaman (OS) MMD. I have a TWIC card as well.

The Op did the same thing on another online forum---and then he said the boat was in the Bahamas...and he never replied to me or to anyone else online as far as I could tell..
