Re: Crew Volunteer Position

Hello

My husband and I would be interested in joining you. We each have sixteen years of sailing experience. We have sailed in the Caribbean, as well as in the Atlantic, Pacific and Aegean and the Great Lakes. Right now we own a 2012 Beneteau first 30JK, which we race. We are comfortable with all aspects of sailing a boat. We have raced extensively together on double handed races of up to a hundred miles nonstop. I have sailed a Beneteau 36.7 from BVIs to New York, 1500 miles nonstop with a crew of 4. We are safe, competent, experienced sailors. We are very positive, outgoing and quite useful! And as an added bonus, I am quite a good cook. We are happy with a dry, smoke free boat. We are flexible on dates, and would love to join you.

Greg and Elaine
