crew cuba

British Sailing Vessel Sandpiper (currently in Marina Darsena,Varadero, Cuba) is looking for one or two crew to join us sailing Westwards from Havana/Varadero area in the next couple of weeks. We plan to cruise the North West coast, heading to Mexico and Belize and head back to the US in late spring. If you are interested in joining us this is an unpaid position, crew would need to cover their own visas, flights and travel costs and any of their own on land travel/dining. We have two quarter berths in the saloon available, will be provisioning the boat with simple food and will happily share this with you, when in harbour we tend to try and save propane by eating street food which costs approximately a dollar for a meal. If you'd like to join us please contact us - outlining your sailing experience, what you would be looking for in this trip and if possible an e-mailed reference from a previous skipper, it might be worth putting a contact phone number (with international code) in too as there's a small chance we might be able to get to a phone line. It is quite hard to get online but we'll get back to you asap. If you got in touch previously please contact us again at the above e-mail adddress with current availability and the information I've requested as it is hard to access old replies. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you Dorry and Rupert

Re: crew cuba

Why don't you just pick up some Cubans as crew? I would think there would be plenty of people there who would be excited to be asked.

Why would anyone want to leave a Caribbean workers' paradise?
