I am ordering a new set of sails and am planning of getting back there early march. My wife will be sailing down to Florida, maybe even the bahamas, before flying back home, and then the crossing to azores for me.
So- when are you planning to do the transatlantic? Still need/got room for another?

Hi

Sorry it took me so long to answer, I have been busy and haven't been on line much.
I am planning the crossing starting mid marsh from RI, going down south to try and get better weather, and then across toward the azores and up to the uk. I am plannig on doing it solo, but am still open to taking someone on board for the ride!!
Where are you located? What kind of experience do u have? Age,ect...?
Let me know if you re still looking for fun, and we'll see if we can work something out.

Take care !

Nick

I have a 34 Morgan in fla. so I know the size .. I have crossed the atlantic in Jan. , but that was on the USS YORKTOWN. A carrier, you don't want that month to cross. I would suggest May , there are a lot of sailers crossing then, safety in numbers my freind, good luck and gods speed. Rick

Bellita is on a distinguished road
I brought a boat down from Virginia to Puerto Rico just before Thanksgiving. I too was thinking about doing it solo, but a friend with zero sailing experience volunteered to go for company and extra hands. He was really needed only twice, but had he not been there with those extra hands, I'm not sure what the outcome would have been, but it would not have been pretty.
Please be safe.. if you are not current with the boat, take someone with you. You never now when two extra hands holding a wheel while you are battling sails in 20 foot seas can save your rigging and possibly your life or boat. I'm talking from experience. By the way... it was freezing cold the first 4-5 days then. I cannot imagine doing that trip now until it warms up a bit. Take the time/money and have the rig really throroughly checked by a competent rigger. I ended up having to have 3 of the standing rigging lines replaced before leaving. I cursed the cost when I paid and praised his work after going through a trip that was a living hell for several days of unbelievable wind and wave action. my rig stayed strong and upright with the work done.
Good Luck and God Speed to you.

Im a British lass, environmental biologist and tai chi practioner, looking to crew a small boat from Europe to the east coast of the USA. Preferably near Florida where my own boat waiting for me. Im studying for my skippers licence and will be taking exams and intensive training in the USA for my barefoot certificates. Im a hard working girl , i cope well under stress and little sleep, i'm very observant with detail and a good multi-tasker, am also a great cook and very considerate to fellow crew members, i dont talk all the time, rather thoughtful in nature but i enjoy a good debate and conversation! I speak english and spanish, I'm looking for a mixed crew position only with other females aboard.

Are you in England?

Hi,

I just found out this thread and I'm quite in the same situation. I'm French too (Breton meme), and I bought a Beneteau First 310 last year. I'm working on the boat from there to prepare her for offshore sailing. My first stage will be a Gulf crossing from Houston to southwest Florida in november. Then I'll sail her in the Keys for 1 year before to go on Florida est coast to wait for the Atlantic crossing in May/June 2013!!

So if you already cross the Atlantic, I'll be glad to hear your story.

Kenavo,
Erwan.

Scary !!! that kind of trip in a 34ft well found vessel is nothing shy of a major undertaking with a very experienced crew during the delivery season. It took years of planing and prep to get my 41ft boat ready for a Bermuda Race in June! I hope you are not serious!!!
