Trinidad to Grenada . . . Maybe Further

Looking for crew from Trinidad to Grenada November 17th to December 13th, maybe longer if it works out. One way, all expenses on board paid, shore side all yours. Must be able to haul sails. Good food.

Re: Trinidad to Grenada, Maybe Further

Just curious........Trinidad to Grenada is only about a 20 to 24 hour trip. Why are you planning for almost a month's time. There is really no place to stop, unless you go by way of Tobago.

Trinidad to Granada is 85 nm anchorage to anchorage. Leave in the afternoon and arrive in the morning.

As a singlehandler I've gone south 7 times and north 7 times. I'm baffled by the concern.

Re: Trinidad to Grenada . . . Maybe Further


Hi. I am a 44 year old High School teacher from New Zealand, travelling through the Southern USA with my 13 year old son, this January and February. I've done a few Bluewater Pacific passages, (NZ -Tonga etc, references avail) and he's a competent Laser sailor. I’m interested in sailing and scuba diving and my son loves Soccer and watersports and bloody X-box! Really keen to do a week long stint with him between 2 places, very flexible.

Cheers John

Hi John,
We have our kids coming from January 2nd to the 13th. It might work after that. We have 3 scuba tanks and compressor on board but only 1 BC. Re- connect with us after new years.

Re: Trinidad to Grenada . . . Maybe Further

I assume you are now in Grenada, If you plan to head north over the next three months. Judy and I are available to crew for at least a couple of weeks. Timing is flexible. We are Canadians from Toronto and I have 5 years sailing experience in Lake Ontario and is technically handy. We have diving certificates but prefer to snorkel.
