I caught that too dave (SVAuspicious).

John Zion,
You sound like an interesting character (from your blog profile). I may be able to join you for the trip west down LI Sound, if you don't have a problem with me being a smoker (never in your cabin).
Brief sailing C/V:
-learned to sail as a teen (now 56)
-have owned 27' sailboat for over 10 years
-one blue water crossing of 400 nm (Tortola -> Turks & Caicos)
-have navigated the East River, up & down several times
-LI Sound is kinda my sailing back yard

Question for you about your Pearson ketch: do you have an auto-pilot?

Everybody has one:

Re: Crew Wanted Now (10/1/14) CT, NYC, Chesapeake

Captain Zion,

My name is Chris and I am 29 year old and have spent the majority of my life between West Africa and the United States. I am a hard worker, and eager to learn all things sailing. My personality is very laid back with a sense of humor and I am a friendly individual who gets along with everyone! I absolutely love the beauty of our world, and the ocean particularly. I am excited by the challenge of sailing, the ability to harness the wind for motion and the ingenuity that an adventure at sea must demand.

I have no sailing experience, but have spent much of my adult life dreaming of building my own vessel someday and sailing the Oceans. They say that "tomorrow never comes" so with resolve I have decided that it is time to make my dream a reality. I began searching forums for opportunities where I could learn the trade as a volunteer, and I wonder if you might could use a crew-hand on your trip for Chesapeake?

I have some time, if you are still in need of someone?

Cheers,
Chris
