Re: First Time Crewing

Great! Thank you. The boat is a 38' sloop, not sure of the make but I'll find out. The Captain and his wife are from WA state and have done this trip before. From what I've seen on his blog and from chatting with him, they previously sailed a 29' boat to Panama from WA, sold it then continued overland through South America. He left WA on Sept. 16, and is currently in Ensenada. He's paying for all food, en-route as well as on Land, he'll buy 2 beer maximum then I'm on my own, as well as flying me home after the journey. I'm really interested in learning as much as possible so I view this opportunity to focus and only have 2 beers or none, not a big deal. I've travelled extensively in Baja over land and have been to La Paz several times on my way to surf around the East Cape. He has a SPOT, but I will see if I can borrow my friends 'in-reach' (I believe thats what it is called) to have my own personal communication, I discussed that with the wife already.

Thanks for the insight and keep it coming.
