good choice to wait until the end of March.. we did it in early april and still had to run a bit to keep in front of the fronts.. Hid out at Ft.Bragg for a week and let one pass.. The seas had built to 17 feet every 8 seconds.. not something I would call comfortable.. enjoy your winter in the south..

Excellent choice. Who needs to be out in this misery, unless it's a short hop to a warm fire and a warmer toddy.

Let me know if you need crew for the fire. And the toddy.

I can handle rough seas and cold water (spent the last two summers in alaska working on commercial salmon boats).

PM me if you still need someone. I am located nearby port orchard.
Pretty good story. I'll try to keep you in mind if I need someone else for a big run up or down the coast. I don't drink underway and we can swap stories about how terrible some owners, captains, and crew are.

Re: Going to Mexico . . .

No it is just a nice sail with the chance of the crew staying aboard if they want to and do some charters with me.

All the best, Sif

Re: Going to Mexico . . .

If you're still looking for crew, I'm 18, male, chilling in Alberta, and ready to go. I've only sailed a little, but I'm looking for more experience, because I love it. I'll pay for what I have to, and would love to join your crew!
thanks, Miroslav.

And I just saw some photos of REALITY, damn she's a beaut! I sailed from Hawaii to Victoria on my uncle's 50 foot schooner, from the little I've experienced I love wooden boats.

Re: Going to Mexico . . .

Hello, if you are still looking for a crew, I am certainly interested. I will have my STCW entry level test out of the way by then, and all I want to do is learn the in's and out's of sailing and the sailing community. So you are leaving Washington state at the end of February? How long do you expect the sail to be? How long do you want the crew for?

I am a 22 year old female from coastal South Carolina, been living, studying, writing and farming in Vermont and I eventually want to purchase a liveaboard sailboat as soon as I have some money saved up. I won't expect to be paid on this trip and I can contribute to food costs. I just want the experience. I'm also a good cook.

Please contact me if you still need someone, and I can arrange to be out there to meet you by the time you take off.

Sincerely,
Annie
