again: Captain wanted - sailing to Nicaragua:

Jan. 12th, 2010

Captain Wanted - Sailing to Nicaragua
All-expense paid adventure for qualified skipper with Spanish-fluent first mate familiar with Central America

CAPTAIN WANTED

this is again me, Ferdinand. I posted this add in December to find a captain. We started the voyaga from Fort Myers to Key West (which is where we are now) and the captain had to leave due to private issues back in Maine. So I am still looking for a captain.

for voyage from Key West to Caribbean coast of Central America

On a Herreshoff Cat Ketch 31 1982 registered and kept in Ft. Myers

Pictures available at this photo album:

Picasa Web Albums - Fernando H. - Sailing to Ce...

or see the boat in person

Scheduled start: as soon as possible - Duration: about 2 weeks

Owner: Ferdinand, I am Austrian, 30 years old with quite some sailing experience, however no experience in captaining a sailboat on such a voyage

Crew so far: my brother Tobi (27) and myself.

Payment: none; however all expenditures (travel to Ft. Myers, flight back from Central America, food, beverage, visas, fees etc.) will be covered by me.

And more: the captain will have a good guide (myself) in Central America, I live in Granada, (Nicaragua) and speak fluent Spanish

Please email me or tell other people about it - thank you!

You can meet me in Key West and send me a private message to: sailinglakenicaragua@gmail.com

Be aware that hiring someone to do this, at least in the USA, will probably require them to have a USCG captain's license, an OUPV at a minimum, since you are effectively paying them in terms of food, drink, visa fees, travel expenses, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Interested

Hi Ferdinand,
I might be interested in doing this trip with you. I will send you an email this afternoon/evening.
You can take a look at my website in the meantime... www.eliasleadershipandeducation.com
But doing this trip with you wouldn't be through my business, you can just take a look at the website to learn more about me, and my qualifications. The "About/C.V." will be a good link to click on.
Talk to you soon
Sammer Elias
