need to sail

Hi all. I own a Hunter 30 and I sail the Chesapeake in the Va, MD area. Recently, my first mate can no longer sail with me and I need crew. I'm looking for 1-2 easy going younger individuals (20s-30s). Normally I take the boat out on weekends, May to Nov, and my cruising area is any destination within 20 miles of Annapolis inside the bay. This is where I feel comfortable soloing. If I find crew I trust I will take time off and the Atlantic coast is our oyster. The boat is based in Mayo MD. As a skipper I have 4 years experience. I've captained boats in Annapolis, Thailand and the Caribbean coastal/island regions, but have no blue water experience. Any crew that gets me from A - B safely, the first bottle of booze is on me that weekend if that's your liking. The whole point of my voyages is to have fun and meet people. I will train anyone willing to learn, but some experience is preferred. Mainly I want to know if you get seasick easily. For anyone willing I pay for the docakage/moorings and will coordinate any other supplies. If you want a say in the destination, you have to split the dockage with me. Ships store (food/water) will be split among all of us going. This is a standing offer but I'll place a thread for each weekend I want to go out. Contact me via the looking for crew threads or directly at darkseer@primogen.com. Photos of the boat interior available upon request.

i'd love to go for a few sails over the summer. i never get to do much good cruising. i'm living at school in norfolk now, but i'll be home on the rappahannock during the summer. i could run up to annapolis and meet you for a few cruises. but i wouldn't want to go up just for a day cruise. 2-3 days would make it worth it

Cruise Length

I takes me 90 min to get to the boat usually. All cruises I plan will probably be over the course of a weekend, which means weekending it at a fun place, Annapolis, St. Michaels, Oxford, Kent Narrows, etc.... . I have about 4 sailing windows open until I haul the boat for the year. (Think the month of OCT) Right now I have no crew so its just me. I'll take up to 2 crew members for a voyage, but more than that and I can't provide separate beds for everyone. I have 4 separate bunks, but the fourth is kinda small so 3 crew is a stretch. Remember this is a 30' boat with a 10.5' beam, so there is room, but its not a luxury liner. This is where the easy going traits are required .

+1 good post.

I'd be willing to do some cruising, most of my weekends are free if I'm not racing. Let me know through this post or PM.

Soon to be 27 y.o. male who will sail in almost anything.
