I am seeking crew for a sail from the Northern Bahamas to Beaufort,
NC. I plan to continue north with a final destination of Boston MA.
Crew would be welcome for all or part of the journey. The preferred
route is off shore 500 miles from Abacos to Beaufort NC but will
depend on wind, weather, and seas. I plan to depart the Bahamas as
soon as plans come together and at least by mid-April.
I am currently exploring the Abaco out islands. The option exists to
join me early to explore some of the islands.
This is not a delivery job for a crusty old salt, but sharing a
sailing adventure with a laid back young sailor. You must have a
great attitude and willingness to put up with the hardships of living
on a small boat.
About the boat; It's a 2001 C320 Catalina. I've lived on board (s/v
Hestia) off and on for the past 5 years. She's well equipped with
SSB, Autopilot, GPS chartplotter, EPIRB, and many other bells and
whistles to make life a little more comfortable.
About me: I have sailed summers on the North Shore of Boston. I have
done a sailboat delivery from Puerto Rico through the BVI's and
ending in St.Barts. I have shipped my boat on a yacht carrier ship
from Newport RI to St. Thomas. I sailed the BVI's and did charters in
the BVI's. Then I sailed through the islands to FL and up the East
Coast to Boston. In Oct of last year I set off from Boston down the
East Coast, spent time in FL and crossed the Gulf Stream to the
Bahamas. That about covers the territory I've seen.. so far!
I also have a 3 year old Dog - Ensign, the only other full-time
She's a very well behaved boat dog.
You should expect to provide personal REFERENCES. I'm not looking for
years of sailing experience. The personality fit is most important.
You probably should be a dog person or at least happy to be around a
dog. Non-smokers only. It should be a great adventure for the right
person. You must have a passport and able to fly into the Bahamas.
