BVI to Florida - short notice
I am in the process of securing a delivery from the BVI to Florida - hopefully beginning April 15 (short notice, I know). Please let me know if you would be interested:
Hylas 49, Virgin Islands to Florida (7-day passage, straight shot unless the Gulf Stream kicks up the last day). 2 prep days and 1 cleanup day also.
Exact dates are uncertain, but I am hoping for an April 15 arrival into BVI and an April 25 end date in Florida. Piece-of-cake delivery, usually very light apparent winds on the quarter/stern.
Crew must have offshore experience and provide sailing log/resume, as well as references.
No per diem pay.
Food covered while on passage but not while in port.
Reasonable transportation to and from the boat is covered, up to $700.
As the captain, I have intimate knowledge of the Hylas 49. I ran one for a year just two years ago, and have been working on Hylas yachts for the past six years. I have made this trip, over different routes, more than a dozen times in my 36 year and 63,000 mile career. Safety-conscious and calm demeanor.
If you are interested and available for these dates, please send your sailing log/resume to jim0123r AT gmail DOT com (don't forger the "r" after the "3").
I look forward to your response -
