Offshore Practice

I am looking to move my boat from Victoria to Mexico in August 2011. I am looking for some Offshore Practice before I make the move. If anyone needs an extra hand out of Victoria let me know.

As well, I will require an extra hand when I am ready to move the boat south. I own a 35' custom sloop. (The boat has made the journey from Alaska to Mexico before, previous owners.)

Have you considered taking the boat on a 3day cruise strait upwind? A couple days of that will give you some experience and help you find problems with the boat. Also, you'll get a fun ride home.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

get to san diego by oct 31, then go to mexico in the post hurricane season--as with the baja haha--try cruising with some of those folks?? august is a bit early to leave for mexico, as they are capable of having serious bad weather at this time of year.
