Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi,
At the beginning of April I'll be heading north from Charleston. My destination is the Med. I have a 2004 Catalina 42 that has been upgraded for blue water cruising. I am looking for someone interested in doing the trip with me from start to finish. I intent to spend a week or two in & around NY then through the East River to Long Island Sound, onto Newport, Rhode Island, Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket Islands before the 1800nm haul to the Azores. If the Azores are enjoyable & the weather is good, I'd like to stay a couple of weeks before the final leg to the Med.
I'm Australian, 56 & a woman.
If you have some good skills, fun to be around, responsible & would like the adventure, then I'd like to hear from you.
Thanks
Trish

I am recently retired and thinking of buying a sail boat. I have chartered them about a dozen times and love it. I plan on living aboard. But since I am still green at this I am looking to gain experiance.
I would be interested in finding out more about this.
I am new to this site. I just got on here an hour ago.

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Trish, I am a 54 y, widower, non smoker. Reasonably fit. Hiked up Mount Kilimanjaro with my kids three years ago. Taking some time off from my practice. Sailed the Bahamas, crossed the Caribbean, Panama canal to Galapagos and back about twenty years ago. Has owned sail boats in Chesapeake bay since then. Expanse is not an issue. Will be able to crew as feasible. If interested please contact me at hassanamb@yahoo.com
Looking forward to hear from you, if not wish you fair winds.
With best regards,
Syed

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Trish.

Wow. Seems there's no shortage of responses! The competition looks pretty steep, but I'd like to throw my hat in the ring as well.

I'm male, 28, and American. I've just taken ASA's 101 keelboat certification, but I have very little time logged, just a couple day trips. I'm looking to join a longer trip to help build my skills. If you think you have room, I'd love to join, even if you could only use me for part of the trip.

A couple years back I canoed the entire Mississippi River. I'm not sure if that speaks to any abilities I might have, but hopefully it's at least interesting?

Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know!

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

HI Itinerant Tom
Thank you for replying to my need for crew. Yes you are right, I've had plenty of response & in part have settled on crew. With that said, personal circumstances can really get in the way despite our best efforts & what I may feel I have organised & nailed down, can change in a heartbeat.
The think with sailing is this; everyone has a first day. What really separates those that go on to be good as crew & sailors are those who are intelligent, observant, quick learners, responsible & respectful of the boat & her gear. Everything else can be taught. The qualities I mentioned, cannot.
So here we are, I have crew but am more than aware that it can easily change. Why don't you tell me a lot more about yourself & we'll keep talking & we'll see where it takes us.

Look forward to continue chatting with you
Thanks
Trish

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Trish:

I am a relatively new sailor but building up miles every chance I can get. Heading to Panama in March to transit the canal. Looking for any opportunity I can to get more miles in.

I am a 54yo male. Non smoker, fit (ran a marathon last year), great cook, certified in First Aid, CPR, ACLS etc. Great sense of humor, low maintenance regular kind of guy who likes adventure (excuse me if that is a paradox).

I see that you have had many posts on this and that you may have a crew as well. What I will offer you is that I live in the Atlantic City/New York City area and can assist as crew if the sudden need comes up for crew when you are within a 4 hour drive of that area.

Not sure what else to say or offer you. This is my first post to this forum.

Best,

Buck

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Buck

Thank you for replying to by need for crew.
I read you email last night & again this morning but remain unsure about what you are offering.
I have managed to find crew but that as we know can fall apart easily due to unforeseen circumstances.
The crew I am interested in need to be on the boat for the entire trip. The leg to NY, then the Azores & then the Med.
If that's what you had in mind, I'd like to know more about you & we can take it from there.
Your contribution to food cost & basic boat expenses is US $200 & it's not negotiable.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks
Trish

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Syed
I know this may seem rude, but quite honestly I can't remember if I replied to you enquiry regarding crewing. If I didn't I apologise, if I did & you are not interested, that's fine, just let me know either way.
Thanks
Trish

Re: Charleston, New York, Azores & the Med

Hi Trish,

Thanks for being so open about crew experience! I really want to learn, and I appreciate folks being understanding. I'm looking for other sailing opportunities between now and then too, so if we do meet up, hopefully I won't be as green as I am now.

Recently, I've been spending half the year in New York City working for an exchange student organization, specifically on a government-funded critical languages scholarship. I love the city and am always happy to come back every year. The other half of the year, I try to stretch my budget while doing as much travel as possible. That's how I managed to get some time to canoe the Mississippi River and hike 800 km in northern Scandinavia. In recent years I've been in Egypt for their elections, farmed in Oregon, and volunteered at a sled dog kennel in Norway.

I'm vegetarian. I'm a big reader. I like learning new skills, and I like meeting new people.

However things pan out, I hope you have a great trip! Thanks for considering me.
