Annapolis - Atlantic early June
 
I'm planning a trip from the Severn river to the Atlantic ocean and back June 1st - 10th or so. I'd like to make a non-stop leg to Norfolk, and it's primarily for this leg that I'd like to have crew. After Norfolk (or Cape Charles), I want to poke the bow out into the Atlantic and perhaps sail up to Chincoteague and back. A circumnavigation of the peninsula is not out of the question.

I'm looking for competent crew that knows the basics of chart navigation and can steer - someone looking for more experience sailing at night or navigating using charts would be ideal. I have one semi-committed crew member and am looking for a 3rd or backup in case he can't make it.

The boat is a Whitby 25, a folkboat-based sloop that I've owned since 2011. Here's a photo.
I've owned a few small sloops which I've sailed around the Bay and have also crewed on some deliveries. A map of a similar trip I took last year as well as some amateur videos can be found here.

I'll provide meals on board, but you will have to get yourself to and from the boat - like a camping trip, only on the water. No solicitations from professional skippers, thank you.

Give me a holler if all or part of this trip sounds interesting.

Is that the Whitby 25 that CRAB had for sale? If so, Did you hear that Don Bache died last friday?

Those are great little boats!

Yes, that's the one.

No, I hadn't heard. That's really sad news. He was quite a man.

Yes it was very sad news, and yes he was quite a man. It takes a whole lot of courage to do what he was able to do. He will be sorely missed.

Are you imposing the same requirements as you did in this previous thread:http://www.sailnet.com/forums/crew-w...-trip-may.html :D ...because I do not know how to repair complicated electronics...or speak any Native American dialects...plus I like to hang laundry on the lifelines...

She’s minimally equipped: tiller steering, porta potty, compass & charts, hank-on foresails. Interested persons should bring their own gear and are responsible for their transportation to and from the boat.

Interested crew should:
- know how to read a nautical chart and
- steer in a straight line (toward the desired point)
- be able to stand night watches
- know how to use the two-way radio
- be willing to do sail changes in all conditions
- cook well
- possess RSA certificate or equivalent
- be physically fit, mentally awake, morally straight, etc.
- be ready to jump overboard and push the boat off of sandbars should we run aground
- not pee on the anchor or rudder
- not throw up on either of the above or in the cabin
- not run with scissors
- or play with matches
- not get seasick
- not get sunburned
- like biting insects
- warn the captain if the boom is about to hit him in the head
- be ready to light the captain’s pipe when it goes out
- wake up the captain should he fall asleep during his watch
- not hang laundry from the lifelines
- be able to repair complicated electronics, including radar, even though there are none on board
- have a knowledge of local Indian languages (e.g., Powhatan)
- not have voted for anyone before Eisenhower
- play a musical instrument
- be mindful of proper idiom and register when speaking with the captain
- write good poetry and be ready to recite a daily poem about how enjoyably the trip is going

I will provide all the food (pop-tarts & non-alcoholic beer, or ramen & gatorade, alternately, with dollar store fig bars for dessert) unless you bring your own and it doesn’t require cooking or leave grease marks on the chart table.

That was a different boat.

This one has no lifelines.

Any other questions?

Anyone I know that has sailed with Will has had a blast, including myself. Sweet sailing boat, great conversation, and an easy going skipper with a sense of humor. Have a great sail Will!

Hi Will,

My post count isn't high enough to send you a PM.

I just had an opening in my schedule that can make this work. Do you still need crew?

I don't have a ton of experience, have passed ASA up through 104, have sailed mostly on the Chesapeake. My overnights have been in marinas -- I have never sailed at night.

If you still need crew, reply and I'll find a way to get in touch.
