Volunteer, PR or VI to Oregon (part or all)

We have one position open starting mid to late December.

You should have an easy-going personality and be a team player. You shoudl be reasonably to very experienced in coastal or offshore sailing, and experienced in maintaining diesels. (two 3GM30F's w/ only 1700 hours, but it's a long trip so we'd like someone with skills)

This is a family friendly boat, a couple or a person with a child are welcome providing you fit in one cabin (double bed plus single berth if needed.)

Food is provided and we are not asking for any contribution toward boat expenses; you would be responsible for your transportation, fees, and incidentals. Everyone shares watches, chores and maintenance to the best of their abilities.

The ship is a comfortable Shuttleworth 44 catamaran, beautiful and sound inside and out and well equipped: old Radar, new AIS transceiver, Sat Phone & Data, mostly new rigging, plenty of new safety gear, etc.

The boat is currently in the DR and will be in Puerto Rico soon, then continued island hopping: Culebra, USVI and/or BVI and St Kitts and points South, then W to Cartagena, Panama, San Blas, the Canal, Hawaii and Oregon. (not all stops guaranteed, and others will be added).

This isn't a fast delivery, we're trying to enjoy the islands and have fun while observing appropriate weather windows and current/wind direction.

Taunya, the master, is liberal in mindset and has her 16 and 9 year old daughters with me. Unfortunately I, Rusty, have to stay home and work (we'll be starting our real cruising life when I retire in 3 years.) Taunya has have been building up experience over the last few years, including an incredibly intensive course through Sea Semester that included 4 weeks on the water in passage from St. Croix to Bermuda and Bermuda to NYC on a 135' Brigantine tall ship. During that time she covered approximately ASA 101 - 108 equivalent with a mate hanging over her shoulder and giving her advice. There is two other experienced crew member currently on board, but we would like a another to share the load and fun.

If you are interested in coming along for some or all of the voyage, tell us about your experience and skills. Please contact me directly at rgesner at gmail dot com.
