Boat: Tayana 58 DS

RI -> Maine next week, 6/24

I have openings for more crew on a brief passage next week from Jamestown, RI to Somes Sound, ME. The plan is to leave on 6/24, arrive 6/26. I expect about 40 hours overall travel.

The boat is a Tayana 58DS with over 50k nm under her hull.

I can pickup crew flying in to PVD or from the train stations in RI. There is public transportation available on the other end, although you may have to make a few connections depending on where you're headed.

I cover all boat costs. Crew covers their air/ground expenses. Usually I have everyone aboard share provisioning cost -- although for such a short trip, I'll pick that up.

Crew with limited sailing experience is ok if they have experience on boats and know they won't freak out when we leave sight of land.

This type of trip is good for someone with a sailing background but limited offshore experience who wants to see what it is like without committing to be at sea for a week or more. Or for someone who just loves to sail and wants to be out on the water.

Please send a PM if interested.

Re: RI -> Maine next week, 6/24

I'm definitely interested in this passage. I'm in Providence and could make my way over to Jamestown very easily. I'm 27 years old, self-employed in IT, and basically just want to learn more about sailing before I purchase my own sailboat. I have almost no sailing knowledge, but I've been around boats my entire life and am 100% capable of standing watch and making proper use of navigation equipment. I'm also very willing and eager to learn the rest along the way.
