Keen lad wanted

Young man, 18 to 22, wanted for the spring, March and April in the Bahamas. Busy boat. Lots of sailing. You will learn a lot. Very experienced skipper. 51 foot ketch.

No previous experience needed. Main thing is that you must be keen to learn and can get on with people. No heavy drinkers or smokers need apply. Absolutely no drugs.

If interested send me a private message and I will get back to you with the details.

Re: Keen lad wanted

I am 29, drug-free, and am in good physical condition. I have previous sailing experience and am interested in this crew position.

Am I too old? If so, why?

Re: Keen lad wanted

Why male? Why 18-22?


Sounds a bit too much like a Craigslist Personal Ad. Did you leave out any duties?

Re: Keen lad wanted

18 - 22 are usually still in school March and April. They have one week off for spring break mid-March and studying like mad for finals until April. And most of us qualify as heavy drinkers too. I'm 23 and have heaps of offshore experience, but out of your age range. I don't know a single peer (sailor or non-sailor) who could commit to 2 months of cruising unpaid, so what compensation are you offering?

Re: Keen lad wanted

Sent you a pm last night. I'm 28, ample offshore and coastal experience. Curious as to why the age limit as well.

I think you'll find some answers on his sailing blog. Lazy Days
Does seem like a Craigslist ad.
