Gazela Primeiro

Not sure if this should be in Crew Wanted or Learning to Sail

The Gazela Primeiro is a tall ship here in Philly (177', 3 masted) - here is a wikipedia link:

Gazela - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here's a link about getting to crew her:

Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild

Looks like it's ~ $100 a year plus some gear you have to purchase plus a minimum of 50 hours of volunteer time - those with the most hours get first choice of time - maximum of 30 crew.

I'm wondering if some retired people have many hrs leaving a working stiff like myself to only get a chance to crew on a Tues-Wed or something like that. But then again, getting a chance to sail her, climbing the rigging, etc would be great - looks like I'd have to take an entire week off of work though.

What do you guys think? Has anyone here ever done anything like that? Anyone here ever crew on a tall ship? Lets hear some stories.

i sailed on the Jeannie Johnston, a replica famine ship. I believed that she held port in Philly for a short time. I mostly worked on building her but did manage to get some hours in around the south of Ireland. Wonderful experience.... even if you have to sail on a tuesday!

I did see a story on the Gazela Primeiro looking for volunteers in a local paper. There is also another tall ship based out of Cumberland County, New Jersey.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Worked on a 67ft two masted gaff rigged schooner all wood and steel,2400 sq ft of sail. Stood watch from 4-8 which was not bad,you get to see the sunrise and the sunset ,at sea what else is there..It will be enjoyable and at times it will be work and climbing the rigging underway is not as fun as it looks especially if you HAVE to...one hand for me and one for the ship!

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.
