Buzz2 Hi John, We came across your post and can offer a offshore trip to you on the East coast heading out from New England waters. If you would like to send me a E mail at Nbess@comcast.net and we can work something out.

Passage Training

Hi All,

As part of our preparations for cruising in less than two years we would like to some passage training.

By this I mean going offshore for a few days, handling weather, watches, and sailing day and night. The ideal boat would be a performance cruiser in the 37 to 40 foot range. The crew would consist of a captain with my wife and I as the only students.

We have a Cal 22 that we sail here on Colorado lakes and have done three bareboat charters in the last couple of years. I have about 15,000 miles of offshore experience but it has been fifteen years since I spent a night sailing and my wife never has.

We have time off October 8 through the 16. We will be on the California coast ready to board on Sunday October 9 and will have return in time to be in Sacramento bright and early October 15.

We have talked with J World in San Diego and they can put us on a J-120 w/Capt which we would really like to do except that their boats have no autopilots. From past experience I think 5 days of hand steering between three people would probably teach us the value of an autopilot or a life ashore.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

John & Cheryl
