Crew for some passages
I would like some company for some longer legs on my way down to BVI and then up to Key West on 50ft Schooner in the Exumas, I am experienced skipper with well found boat. Any ideas about finding nice crew?

Depending on your definition of nice crew, you should consider sending me a PM! I've sailed the BVIs and Exumas in the last couple of months so should be able to provide some useful input.

I would be interested in hearing about the waters and islands between Great Exuma and the VI's. Please excuse my ignorance... what's a PM ?

Capt. Blighty,
You posted in the right place. PM = private message (like an email through this forum). You can't send a PM until you have at least 5 posts.
You could just post here in the thread you started until you get 5 posts or post on 'the Song Thread' in off topic.
I'd be curious to see a pic of your boat. Have a fun trip.

Another option is to use an online service such as Find a Crew™

Thanks for the offer and I will keep you in mind but I was hoping to find someone who can come on passages up until about Sept or Oct.

Hi captblighty, at the start of April I did the longish passage from Tortola to Provo, Turks and Caicos, then spent the rest of April and half of May cruising the islands of the T&Cs and the Exhumas. Without doubt the most incredible islands I have visited. So i'm familiar with the art of navigating those tricky cuts, keeping tabs on the tides and currents, overnight passages and finding nice holding in the perfect anchorages.

Do you have more info on what your plans and intentions are?
