Re: UK to US

Just to add to my earlier post. I do not have an Atlantic crossing but i have been in the northern Atlantic and have an outside passage from Booth Bay ME to Bermuda under my belt with not touching land fall for 19 days. If that qualifies me i would hope to hear from you soon.

Please consider this post closed, I now have a crew identified if I am able to get myself organized for a late November / early December Atlantic crossing. Thanks to all who responded, James

Re: UK to US

James, sorry for your loss; you have a lot on your plate and sound as though you know your mind and what you are capable of handling. I was Navy trained as a Quartermaster and served on LST 1167 in Viet Nam in '64 and '65, then joined the Merchant Marine as a AB in '66 and returned to 'Nam at the end of '66 to get an objective look around. At 22, I was unlicensed 2nd Mate for Red Stack Tugs in San Francisco and so on for about 38 years on every type of vessel. At 27, I got my sixpac in Miami which was grandfathered to 100 tons in '75. As to ATLANTIC Crossings experience, I crossed from Grand Canary to Antigua in '86 in my 36' steel Tulla, 'Thalassa' by Van de Stadt in 26 1/2 days. I crossed from Cabo San Lucas, Mx. to Hilo, Hawaii in my 32' Challenger in 22 days and missed my landfall by 12 miles. I did it with only a compass, VHF and AM radio reciever. I've been to Europe by ship a bunch on ships and once as crew on a 127' Feadship. Crossing the Atlantic on a well-found vessel is a matter of seamanship, not chicken little thinking. I just turned 67 last Sunday and can't say I'm the same solo-sailer I was as a youngster but I'm fit enough, experienced enough and can still stand my watch. I prefer to go to sea with seaman.

Re: UK to US

I'm RYA yachtmaster Offshore and Ocean. I've delivered power and sail all around the far east and Pacific. I've done about 70,000 miles in all conditions. Recently completed a Hong Kong- Singapore run on a Hunter 446 and ran into 60+ knots on the nose. brought the boat (and crew) home in good condition without any damage at all. I'm Irish so I get on pretty well with Americans. I like boat speed as much as anyone else. But I'm all for reefing early and preventing damage to people or equipment. I'll need paying but if you want a safe pair of hands, I'm your man. you can email me at thejohnmallen @ gmail.com (take out the gaps).

Thank you for your response but as I pointed out a few days ago, I now have a crew lined up and I consider this post closed. Thanks again, James
