Virgin Islands to California via Panama

We are a professional crew requiring an additional 2/3 pers to crew from the Virgin Islands ASAP to California stopping occasional through panama and the Mexican Coast (weather depending). The vessel is a very well equipped recently surveyed 70' luxury Catamaran. As crew we have over 75,000nm experience, a large amount on this vessel. Crew needs to be experienced at night watches, line handling and basic navigation. Fit, conscientious, non sea sick and and reasonable cook would be a bonus. The boss covers all onboard expenses and travel is negotiable. This position would suit individual interested in working in the luxury yacht industry or gaining miles for qualifications. Please post back ASAP if available and interested, couples welcome.

Re: Virgin Islands to California via Panama

Hi, we are a couple that live aboard in British Columbia, we are avid sailors in winter and summer, just on land for a few days to catch up on things and found your message looking for crew. Chris has skippered and crewed the south pacific for a year as well as skippered in the BVI on several cats & others for Moorings, when not working as charter boat people we sail the coast. I am a local sailor in B.C., worked as ships chandlery, marine shop manager, live aboard,cook, bartender, musician, sailor, and ah, my computer key board letters are sticky...hence the stupid loggin name. If you are interested , send an e-mail and we will talk ....Thanks Tracey anne
