Seeking blue water anywhere in the world this summer!

Looking to crew on a blue water journey anywhere in June, July, or August. Hello, my name is Bart, a 52 year old healthy and fit Canadian. I have my ASA 101/103/104. In the last few years I crewed a couple of weeks on a 37 footer here in British Columbia and last summer crewed for 7 weeks on a 27 footer, sailing the inside passage from Alaska to Olympia, Washington. I would now like to experience an ocean passage if possible. I work hard and am easy to get along with. I live on an vegetable based diet, but do not shy away from cooking a burger for someone else. Also a PADI Divemaster. If you need a reliable crew member this summer, please keep me in mind. Starting an finishing points can be anywhere in the world. I can send you my resume and answer any questions you may have on request.

Re: Seeking blue water anywhere in the world this summer!

Hi Bart,

I'm planning to sail my new 2014 Jeanneau 409 from SF to the San Juan's leaving sometime around August 15. I'm planning to take the offshore route, up and over the pacific high, possibly even over the top/north of Vancouver Island and down the Discovery Passage. Taking the offshore route could take between 9 -12 days or more depending on wind and conditions. That said, the good news is that I'm not planning to bash close hauled against the prevailing wind, waves and current. And I'm definitely not planning to motor up the coast. In short, I'm willing to spend the time needed to steer a course/loop up and over the pacific high to stay on a comfortable broad to beam reach.

If you're interested in some blue water experience, this trip might be a good fit for you. And you might be a good fit for me given your experience sailing the inland passage and Sound.

Please note that this will only be a delivery cruise as I'm staying with friends up in the San Juan's once there.

Does this delivery sound like something you'd be interested in. If so, let me know and I can tell you a bit more about me. For now, I'm a 48 year old native Californian, Sailed in SF bay for the past 10 years and on and off my whole life. Longest and only true bluewater trip was on my sister's boat with her husband as captain from New Zealand to Tahiti. 2 plus weeks across the south pacific. Other than that, not too much bluewater but quite a bit SF bay and So Cal coastal cruising.

Hi Dan,

On the road with very limited internet access. Thank you so much for your reply. At this time I do decline your potential offer though, I would like to make a longer passage if possible. Despite of not having had much response so far to my ad, I'd like to hold out a little longer. If I could combine it with a sailing trip in June or July with someone else, than I would certainly like to come with you. I'd like to get as much sailing in as possible. Could you send me your email, so I could stay in touch. Thanks again.
