Med to the Caribbean
Can someone please advise me on when most of the charter Yachts leave the Med and head to the Caribbean for the season. I am looking at doing a season in the Caribbean after this Med season and want to secure a position to take me over there as well.

Also, any guidance on salary levels for a deck hand with STCW95, RYA Comp Crew and 1000 delivery miles would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Matt,
a load of of boats cross together for the ARC in November -safety in numbers etc...but after hurricane season is best, ie mid October and later...(June too soon, July stand by, August come she must, September remember, October it''s all over -HURRICANES)
I think u are looking at paying rather than getting paid right now, but keep searching net for a boat needing crew on expenses shared basis -I am also looking -may have something- but last yr people were asking $1000+ for a berth! so i think shared basis is the way to go -until u get a paid job of course! email me with any ideas etc...Fair Winds mate
