This is a commercial delivery by a licensed Master with over 150,000 offshore miles. I have an open bunk for an experienced sailor to gain offshore experience from a former sailing instructor (Basic Sailing to Celestial Navigation and everything in between). Ideal candidate has a good bit of time on the tiller of a sailing dinghy, has some coastal sailing experience and is possibly looking to become a professional sailor.
This is a well found boat that has been going up and down for four years since new. This captain has been maintaining the boat and doing the deliveries for the past three. What you take away from the experience is up to you. You can do a parallel study of the weather window and gulf stream routing with the captain and/or focus on other areas or simply stand your watch, the choice is yours.
If interested email me: r.brakeNO SPAMusa.net with a sailing resume and a way to get in touch with you. New Englanders are preferred so that we can meet beforehand. This is a US boat traveling between US ports with a foreign port in between so a US passport, Permanent Residence or a b1/b2 visa is required.
