I'm looking for one crew member to help me make a passage from the west coast of Puerto Rico (Boquerón or Mayaguez) up to the Caicos island of Providenciales (~450 nm). We would depart PR during the first weather window starting April 10th.

Ideally potential crew would fly into San Juan PR on or about April 8th to allow for a day of orientation and preparation. Anticipated passage time is approximately three days. Providenciales provides outstanding opportunity for return flights with most major carriers servicing it.

This is not a paid crew position, but I would be negotiable to your travel expenses...within reason. I will cover all the operating expenses of the boat plus food (but request assistance in provisioning to ensure your food preferences or dietary needs are met).

I expect you to help with alternating watch standing and meal preparation, plus general care and cleanliness of the boat.

This opportunity is not limited to this passage. You'd be welcome to continue with me through the Bahamas and onto Florida if interested.

About me: I'm a 53 year-old retired Air Force guy and owner of the boat...a Jeanneau 43Ds. I've been sailing for approximately 15 years and purchased my boat about three years ago. I've done five offshore passages and got to the Caribbean via the Caribbean 1500 rally back in November with three other crew members. I know my boat well and am very organized and safety oriented.

The boat is very offshore ready which is an essential part of the stringent safety requirements of the World Cruising Club for participation in their rallies. Another Caribbean 1500 boat will be traveling along in parallel with us.

Please let me know if you're interested in going and any questions you may have.
