Erie Canal

Need one or two people to crew on a 1995 Hunter 37.5 from Oswego, NY across the Erie Canal, down the Hudson River into New York City, and then south to the C&D Canal and Chesapeake Bay. Crew will need sailing experience and knowledge of navigation; be willing to do night sailing, have a sense of humor, pay for food and secure transportation.

Re: Erie Canal

Would you be open to entry level crew? I just passed the ASA 101/103 courses & am a member of the local yacht club here in Grand Haven MI on Lake Michigan. I am a very quick learner, & hard worker. I am obsessed with sail boats, & just looking for more experience/hours on the water to add to my ledger

Re: Erie Canal

Hi there I live in Albany have always wanted to travel the canal and down the Hudson river. I use to have my own 32 ft Pearson sailboat and have wanted to get back sailing.
I would very much be interested in talking to you about your trip. You may look me up on linkedin and my e mail address is james.reeksjr@gmail.com.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Erie Canal

I would be interested, it all depends on your timeframe. I am a Lake Michigan Sailor based in Chicago and Own a Tanzer 29. I have night, and some heavy weather experience. Compass/Map navigation skills and I am an Aircraft Mechanic by trade. I do all my own boat work and I single handle most of the time. Please PM me

Re: Erie Canal

Stood watch on 4 hour shifts in team of 2 crew and did 200am-600am shift from Trinidad (Chagas) to Panama Canal then Panama Canal to Golfito, Costa Rica. Most of the time the auto pilot was broken. You have not said when you are going?
