SF Bay to San Diego

Looking for crew (1 or 2), for the trip from Alameda Ca. to San Diego. Some sailing experience appreciated. The trip will be played safe with no "have to" dates on arrival. Hopefully 1 or 2 nights heold up for weather, especially around Pt. Conception. I cover all costs for the boat and birthing. You supply or pay for your own food and such. Startin the end of August with an arrival in SD somewhere around the middle of September.
Vessel is a well founded Hallberg Rassy 35 with radar, GPS, liferaft, EPIRB and hot running water. Who could ask for more...

That should be a nice trip and at a nice time of year. I have sailed along this route a few times and I have free time. But, if anyone else who meets your requirements asks to go, take them first because I get plenty of sailing. I doubt you will have trouble finding someone but if August arrives and you still need someone, let me know. Ken

Oh- don't worry so much about Pt. Conception- just pick a reasonable day. (< 30 kts)

Thanx...I've done the trip numerous times. I like someone to hand steer when I tend the sails in a blow rather than hoping the auto pilot does not get overwhelmed. I'm sure some others might find a downhill trip to SD fun.

Re: SF Bay to San Diego

Try to time it so you round Pt. Conception in daytime. We did it at night and it was terrifying. Manageable wind, I think (probably blowing 25-30; nothing unusual on the weather report....no advisories, business as usual, I guess) but crazy waves. Being able to see them would have helped, I think! Maybe not........

Re: SF Bay to San Diego

I found if I got on the VHF and talked to some fishermen, I could get a sea state report. I usually leave SLO around 11pm. and catch Conception at first light.

Re: SF Bay to San Diego

Hello, my name is Zack

I am currently living in Napa California and would like to take time off to travel out at sea to gain more experience. I found your post and thought a trip down the California coast might be something I need to get more experience on sailing.
I have worked on fishing boats before for three years and have had two weeks of experience on a sail boat and would like the opportunity to continue learning for i enjoyed every minute of it.
About myself: I am a person that is dependable and trustworthy, qualified as a chef and a writer and if any of those talents can be used on a vessel then feel free to ask. I like to learn as much as I can and have a good time doing it. I am also an out door person having been raised on a farm near the red woods where I go out with friends taking nothing but our backpacks for a few nights. I love nature and have cared for many types of animals and would enjoy seeing even more sights when I travel. My plans for a voyage is to take a break before college and see life as it is.

If we can work something out give me an email to see if we can talk about the matter. My email is chef_who@ymail.com

Re: SF Bay to San Diego

Hey Martin, Saw your add for crewing at the end of August, and thought I would give you a shout. I've been sailing on inland waters and I'm looking to get some off shore experience. I'm taking a Coastal "Sea Trials" Cruising course in July and would love to reinforce it up with some offshore miles. I'm super dependable, not afraid to work hard, follow directions well and can fix about anything.

I would love to be part of your crew for this voyage. Let me know if your interested or want more details.

Thanks

Jim

Hi,

I'm interested in joining the trip down the coast. I have some experience sailing around southern California and panama/ Colombia as chef/ crew on my father' boat and charter boat. I'm in Los Angeles. My schedule is flexible. I'm willing to pay my way. I'm just looking for cruising experience.

Re: SF Bay to San Diego

Hi,

I am very interested in crewing for you on your trip down. I live in San Diego so it would be a convenient destination. I have some offshore sailing experience having sailed to Cabo and a fundamental understanding of most aspects of sailing. I'm very responsible and diligent while on watch and I don't have any problems with the dog watch. I have my bareboat certification and have chartered in Martinique and the BVI's. I really want to learn as much as I can because I hope to buy my own boat and do some cruising soon. I'm 52 and getting ready to retire and take off in the next couple of years so I would really appreciate the opportunity to come along.

Thanx Steve, I appreciate it. Check out the blog and my Rocna anchor. It holds so well, I can throw it up in the air and it grabs into thin air and holds...amazing...
