Caribbean 2014: BVI/Aruba/BVI

Hello Ya'll,

Next summer I am taking my 2006 Leopard 40 cat from the BVI to Grenada (and Trinidad if weather dictates) then to Aruba. We will return via PR.

I will leave in July and return in November.

I currently have a series of friends and family coming for parts of the trip, but am open to un-paid crew who wants to join for all, or parts of the trip.

Here's the deal:
- I will pick up food and boat related costs.
- Crew pays for drinks (moderate drinking only please).
- Crew pays travel costs.
- Everybody takes turn cooking, cleaning.
- We takes turns on watch.

Here is the boat (I charter it out during high season).



I have also attached a very rough view of the planned route.

Let me know if you are interested.

Cheers-M

Hello, I am considering buying a boat for world cruising and want to get some more experience in before doing so. Your planned trip sounds perfect. Let's talk off line. Contact me and let's discuss details. PS: I am here in California also... Where is the boat?

Re: Caribbean 2014: BVI/Aruba/BVI

Hello, I have completed recently my ASA 101 and am looking for opportunities to go sailing. I have special interest for Catamaran while I hope one day I could be sailing with my family in one!!!... I am not a fully experienced sailor but have been out with no issues and very whiling to learn while enjoying the time on board... Due to my job I can only spare a maximum of two weeks in a row but will need when, where and how... Please let me know your contact details so we can be in contact and arrange further... BTW, I live in Orlando - Fl ...

Thanks

Hi Angel,

Shoot me an email at Mark_McMillan_CA@Yahoo.com and we can discuss the trip.

The trip is four months, but I am sure we can figure out two weeks for you.

Cheers,
Mark

Hello Mark,

I have sailing experience on a Leopard 43 that came from the Caribbean and is now in the SF Bay. I am USCG Licensed Captain that is available as crew, as I'm still learning and honing my skills. Experience is what I'm looking for, I'm hard working, attentive to details and an easy person to "sail along" with. Anxious to know if you have finalized your crew or not. My email is aburgin20@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you! -Angelika

Hello!
I am looking to gain experience and take on an adventure on sea. I have no experience but I am a hard worker, enthusiastic, and love meeting new people. I am willing to offer my labor and company for a month and 2 weeks of this voyage. Let me know if you have a spot! I'd be thrilled to take it.

Hello, My name is David and my wife and I cruised the Caribbean for 13 years aboard our Downeast 45. We would like to join the Grenada to Aruba leg of your journey. We have done that route several times with the Roques and Aves being the highlight of the trip. Please visit our web-site @ www.prospectlearning/sorrento to assess our abilities, personalities and experiences. Thank you, Dave. P.S. Do you carry a SSB radio on board?
