Re: Panama to Marqueses, Early April

Hi--
I am interested in joining your crew. I grew up sailing a Folkboat on San Francisco Bay with my father. I currently own a Cal 29 which I single hand sail on the Bay and out the Golden Gate.

I am 6' 4", 235 lbs, 66 years old. I am in excellent health and shape. I stay in shape by hiking, biking, lifting weights and swimming. I am a semi-retired MBA small business owner. I have a manager who runs my business.

I am able to contribute to the cost of the trip, plus I will get to Panama at my own expense.

I hope you are interested. Peace, Doug

Re: Panama to Marqueses, Early April

Hi,

I am from Seattle, I sail my own Bavaria 42 Ocean center cockpit "Pogo", up the coast off Vancouver Island up towards Alaska and back every year. I have been sailing and been around water since I was born. I am married, 50, physically fit, 6'3", when on land I usually go 60+ miles per week on my road bike, expert Whistler skiing in winter and hiking local mountains. I am an avid downwind paddle boarder and kayaker in Maui, in the Molokai channel. Comfortable in all water and weather.

Sailing skills: Light gas / diesel mechanics, maintenance, cleaning, rigging, navigation, able skipper in all weather.

Goal: I would like to sail with someone experienced across the Pacific first, and then follow up on my own boat and crew.

Money is not a problem and would be available during the time frame listed.

If I am a good fit for your trip, or if you want more information please email details:

Cheers, Mark

Hi Harry & Leanne

in case your crew to the Marquesas will/can not join you for the canal transit, I would like to help as a line-handler. In fact, I have been looking for that chance for two years and I "only" have made it to the San Blas and the visitor center of the Miraflores locks last year....

My background and experience: 54, f, German, living in Switzerland, accustomed to sailing from childhood, crewing since 2011 for several weeks a year, on several boats between 30 and 46 feet in Thailand/Malaysia, Cuba, Panama, Mediterranean, Baltic Sea (including North-Sea-Baltic-cannel), more than 1000 nm altogether - that is not much, I know. But I am confident, that my experience will be sufficient to do the job properly.
I will get to and from Panama at my own expense, money is not a problem

If interested, please reply with private message
