Hello. I have been preparing a cruise to south america from Vancouver for over a year and have a little bit experience but need someone with a lot more experience than I. Also someone with some experience. I have a beautiful offshore boat with all the fixings. 1981 bayfield 32c with a 3 foot bow spread so technically 35, cutter design.

I have been wanting to do this for some time and been preparing. I will pay for services. Pay is negotiable. thank you.

I wanted to leave with the Vic Maui race but we will have to leave a little later like a week before august is the latest.

Hi Waterlog,

One thought to build some more experience, access savy crew and cover a good stretch of that water with some other boats is to consider the Coho Ho Ho and the Baja Ha Ha boat rally's. Coming down from the PNW with the Co Ho Ho gives some additional security by travelling with other boats. I sailed in the Baja last year and there were a number of PNW/Canadian boats that sailed down to join the Baja. Both rally's have web pages you can scan and the Coho begins in August heading south.

I intend to be on a boat in the Baja again this year - keep us posted if you join the Baja. Have a friend on a boat on the Vic-Maui - item on my bucket list.

Have done Gulf Islands number of times out of both Vancouver and Sydney.

Cheers and good luck with locating good crew.

In regards to your posting for a crew to go from Vancouver to South America,
I would be interested in this trip.
I have about 8,200nm offshore sailing and about 121 days offshore experience.
My most recent trip was a delivery of a 50' Tayana from La Paz, Mexico to Brunswick,GA In April-June of 2014.
I have not sailed on the Pacific South American coast but I have traveled to Ecuador (mainland) and Peru etc.
The owners of the boat I just crewed on have asked me to come back and take the boat up to New York City (its final destination) for the month of July, but I would be available at the time you are talking about. And I can arrange with them a time of my leaving so as to be available when you wanted me there.
As far as compensation goes... airfare to/from the boat, food and $75 a week would be ideal but I am flexible.
If you are interested in me you can email directly (available from my profile)
It sounds like an amazing trip through a great region(s) of the world an i would love to help you make it happen.
