Transatlantic Crossing

I am looking for crew to help me sail my Caliber 40 LRC from Miami to Europe via Canada, then back to Miami via Portugal, the Azores and Bermuda. I anticipate this trip taking nine months or more and realize that most people can't take off that amount of time so will consider crew for various legs of the trip. To save your time and mine, please DO NOT REPLY IF:

1.You want to get paid; not going to happen! I will feed you while onboard; the rest is up to you.
2. You have never sailed before; if we encounter bad weather in the middle of the Atlantic, I need crew that can function, not curl up in a ball.
3. You smoke, have addiction problems or a criminal past or present.
4. You want to be the Captain; buy your own boat.
5. You are only available for two weeks; I need people with flexible schedules.

I anticipate leaving Miami the beginning of MAY. Crossing from Canada to Ireland during June-July. Leaving Portugal the beginning of October. All dates are subject to delay due to weather and or repairs. People with tight schedules can NOT be accomodated.

If you think you might be a match, send me an email with as much info about you as you care to share (that is relevant to the task ahead).

PM me.

I will reply to every one, even if it is to say no!

Hey Dcohen, interesting route you have there - and to do that within one season - pretty aggressive to say the least, I mean, how long do you plan to stay in Ireland? Its going to be hard on the teeth, but if I had the time and stamina...

Best of luck

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

This captain does not have any significant blue-water experience and involving others in a trans-Atlantic voyage without disclosing that fact is reckless.
Anyone considering this trip should send me a message. I can provide other references that share my concerns.

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

sir, that post was pretty agressive, "if you want to be be the captain buy your own boat" etc... It Doesnt Make ANYone wants to with you.
Sailors dont speak that way, you better chill out a bit i think...
peace

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

Hi.
I am a qualified Yachtmaster and boat owner and I have experience in skippering 45' boats in Greece and Turkey and of crewing from Ireland to Portugal and to Spain. A trans-Atlantic trip is something I'm interested in. I'm due to retire soon from my job and can be available in the Summer 2013 for the Canada to Ireland leg.
Lastly, I'm a fit, and friendly 57 year-old with over twenty years of boat-owning sailing experience.

Best regards

Colm

Hi Colm,

I am interested in going to Europe from the east coast. I will be in charleston SC after June 5th or so. But may also be able to meet you elsewhere if needed.

I can give you more of my experience if you are interested in contacting me directly.

Thank you,
Bryan

May be he had some very bad experience with the overbearing crews in the past that he would rather not to deal with it anymore.

I think communication is the key. I think we all want to the same thing but have a different way to express it.

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

Hi Bryan

I was in Charleston a few years ago, in a RV driving around the Carolinas and Georgia. Great holiday! I'd be interested in learning more about your sailing experience and about the boat. June is good for me.

Best regards

Colm

Colm,

Sorry if this is a duplicate reply. Not sure if you got the other two!

The route has changed. Now Miami - Bermuda - Azores - Portugal. Still plan to leave beginning of May. If you are still interested, PM me.

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

Hey,
interested in your trip, I am adventurous woman, 49 years young and also an experienced diver.
I would like to make a long boattrip (1 year) to get more experience before bying my own boat.
Not that much sailing done, but took my ass crew course in Belgium at 7 bft.
Not afraid of anything, and certainly not of water or bad weather.
Besides that I certainly know how to survive on a boat, and lots of experience with handling lines at dicking and mooring, and fast lurner.

Re: Transatlantic Crossing

Very aggressive "advertisement". Any one replying to this is very desperate to get some sailing (miles building) for any cost or plain stupid
