10 week trip Hampton Va to the Bahamas and back mid may-july

Hi

I'm looking for crew to do my trip with me.


10 week sailing trip from Hampton Va to the Bahamas and back. Leaving mid may and returning end of july. A crew of 4 will sail out of Hampton and down the ICW to the Bahamas. We will be doing it on a 35.5 Irwin Citation. Its sail and motor powered, with two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living/ dining room. We will be stopping off and exploring many places along the way and with the use of a 16ft sib getting into all the interesting inlets the yacht cant reach. We will also get to scuba and snorkel the interesting waters of the Bahamas and catch fresh fish to grill on the bbq in this boat.There is going to be a crew of 4, with 3 spaces currently available. All costs including food, visa's, fuel, mooring charges etc approximate at $750 pp for the 10 weeks. If interested please get in touch.

Chances of finding someone with boat experience to do this trip is slim, i'm describing it for the college students who probably wouldn't have the first clue about what any of that meant.

Understandable but wouldn't you prefer someone with a bit of knowlage as it is quite the voyage? Did it with my folks as a youth but have sailed since a child. Good luck and hope you find the right crew. Enjoy

How much experience do you have sailing across the gulf stream? What are the safety equipment do you have on board? Beware that sharing expense is different from charging the crew. The latter needs you to have a Captain license (at least the six-pack).

It seems that you are not very familiar with the terms, are you looking for experienced crews to teach you? It is unlikely that some one will pay you the money so that they will have the privilege to teach you.

Regardless, good luck and have fun.

Re: 10 week trip Hampton Va to the Bahamas and back mid may-july

Maybe i have worded it wrong, but i am not charging anyone for it i have estimated split costs of food, mooring, visa and fuel to give everyone an idea there's no charge there.

... Considering you are on the ocean when hurricanes begin to appear, I happily disqualify myself... Good luck, but be careful!

I think your estimates may be a little low for cost sharing. I usually figure $15/person/day for food on delivery and you are including other costs in your estimate of less than $11/person/day.

Best of luck with your recruiting effort. There are lots of people out there up for adventure. Try to find someone who can cook - there are long stretches of the ICW when you may have to be in the cockpit unless you are fortunate enough to find someone else that can really understand piloting. Do you have an unlimited Towboat/US policy? Best money you can spend.

You will probably find that judgment and personality are more important than skill and experience for what you propose.

Have a good time.

sail fast and eat well, dave
