Arrow Crew Wanted - Miami-Virgin Islands 3/14

Hi -

I have secured the delivery of a Hylas 56 cutter, from Miami FL to the Virgin Islands.

Trip details:
2011 Hylas 56, in great shape with all the electronic toys
Scheduled departure date 3/15 but dependent upon weather, of course
Route is straight shot: East until 65W, then south to the islands
Could be extended motorsailing, in typically easterly winds
Expect an 8-day trip, plus 1 prep day and 1 cleanup day.

Crew details:
Need 3 crew, for a total of 4.
All crew must be experienced offshore, must send resumes and references
No per diem pay
Food is covered - no crew contribution
Transportation between Miami and your home.
At the present time, transportation to and from the boat are not offerred.
(Spirit Air flights from St Thomas-Miami should be available for $170-$250.
We will book tickets before departing Miami, to save costs.)

Captain details:
USCG Master, 100 Tons
Professional sailboat captain
36 years experience, 50,000 miles
Familiar with route (12 trips) and harbors of refuge along the way
Easy going, personable.

Please send resumes, references, and contact info to
jim0123r AT gmail DOT com

Pleasure be sure you are available through 3/27 or so, in case we have to wait for weather to depart. Thank you.

Hi Jim
Your post sounds interesting. I've been thinking about a trip like this for some time and have the time. My experience might be a little less then you’re looking for, however I’ve sailed Lake Champlain on J 24’s and 29’s back in 1986-2000 and the occasional day trip on a friend’s boat. I’ve lived near the lake or the ocean all my life, so I’m comfortable on the water. I’m a 52 year old male and in good physical condition. If you’d like to discuss further, please email me at
