Subic Bay to Leyte, Philippines

Looking for sailing couple or 1-2 individuals to sail with us from Subic Bay, Philippines to Tacloban City Leyte, or thereabouts. Details are as follows:

About me and my wife:

I am an American, employed part time as an adjunct professor teaching a couple of courses per year, online. I am living aboard our boat with my Pinay wife of 23 years, who has earned 2 yr. college degrees in both the Philippine and US.

I have travelled and sailed rather extensively, but my sailboat experience was many years ago, and, until purchasing my boat last year, I sailed only as a crew member, and never as an owner. My wife has minimal sailing experience, so we have spent the last year learning our new boat.
re-honing our skills, and sailing around Subic Bay, where the boat is currently berthed.

About the boat:

The boat is a 40 foot trimaran, which is somewhat well known in Subic as a very fast boat. It has won the Subic to P.Galera race some 8 times in the multi-hull class, but is rather spartanly configured. It has a forward and aft cabin which have standard double bunks, but which require that one duck under the "wings" to get into. The galley and saloon have 6' or better head room and a settee that converts into a single berth. We have a portable table that we use in the galley way when folks need a platform to eat upon, and there is a small nav station upon which we sit our Asus laptop and the CPN nav system that we run on it.

We use a simple, LPG, one burner stove and have about 60 litres of water storage inboard, with about 4x that stored in the outer hulls in jerry cans. The toilet is very simple and there are no luxurious amenities like AC or hot running water. Water is available in the galley and head using simple foot pumps. "Showers" at sea occur in the cockpit, where we haul aboard
buckets of clean salt water and rinse off with a few. sparing splashes of fresh water. Cockpit showers in Subic are via a garden hose hooked up to a fresh water outlet on the dock.

About the trip - Jan 2-16:

I have developed a rather direct route, which would end us up in either Catbalogan, Samar or in Tacloban City, Leyte where the boat will be berthed until next summer or so. The intended route will by-pass many of the more typical yachting stops like Boracay, visiting lesser known destinations like southern Marinduque, Masbate, and Burius Islands.
The existing plan is to sail with three persons, day sailing only, doing "two on, four off" watches sailing 12 hours daily, usually from about 6am to 6pm, including the time necessary to let go in the am and tie up in the evening. We expect the trip to take a leisurely 14 days, with time to
linger along the way when weather is too taxing or when we find a place that we would like to hole up in for a couple of days. That said, the route is still open for discussion based on the interests and skills of the crew which we take aboard.

We could, for instance, stop at some of the more well known and admired locations which are a bit out of the way if the crew were numerous or experienced enough to help us to make up the time lost. I will need to be somewhere with a solid internet connection, in order to teach a February class, so, while we should have plenty of time to make the trip, there are definate limitations as to how long we can take to do so.

Regarding this last point, perhaps the ideal situation would be to have two experienced crew aboard, so if you have an interested spouse, partner. or friend who would like to make the trip, we would definitely be open to this option.

About you:

Now that you know a bit more about us, the boat, and our potential itinerary, please tell us a bit more about you, and what you think about the details put forward above. Once you write us, it might be best to simply meet in person. We would definitely need you to do a day sail or
weekender with us up in Subic before making a final decision, but, based on what we know about you so far, my wife and I are excited about having you come along for the journey.

Please write soon via private message.

Looking forward to meeting you,

G2L

Dear Sir, Miss,

Thanks for your note. Definitely interested in meeting you and the wife, and perhaps sailing together some time in the not-so-distant future. Talk to us more via a private message, as to what is going on with you guys down in Cebu. Why are you there, what do you know about Port Carmen, would you be able to join us in Catbalogan, etc., etc.

Nice to make your acquaintance, and "Happy New Year" to you and yours.
