CREW WANTED-Penobscot Bay (Maine) to the Chesapeake


I am moving my vessel from Penobscot Bay to Chesapeake Bay first part of September. Looking for crew members to share in the experience. Want someone who has off shore experience and can navigate.

Trip should take no more than two weeks. Intended route is Maine to Cape Cod canal. Block Island to Cape May, either through LI Sound or off shore. Delaware River to C&D canal and down to Deltaville area.

Vessel is in excellent condition with recent engine, sails and rigging.

I am interested in sailing with you. I don't have any offshore experience, But I have been sailing for 10+ years. I have been on crews racing J-27's on the delaware river for the last 1.5 years. I have an ASA105 cert. (Navigation). I have sailed Delaware River to C&D canal into Chesapeake before. Wife is OK with it. Time off from work should not be a problem. I'm not afraid of hard work. You can contact me at

Thanks - Ben
