Eastern North Carolina

Hi! I'm a transplanted Southport(er) from Chesapeake Bay and have a sailboat. Would sure like to find others into sailing; I'm only working part time at present and have mostly a flexible schedule. I'm at a marina right on the ICW and about 3 miles from the Atlantic. Open to any/all kinds of sailing; boat is ocean-crossable.

Cheers and thanks for reading!

Re: Eastern North Carolina

Hi,

I'm landlocked in Colorado, but if you are transplanted and looking for people to sail with, I'm also flexible for fly in extended sailing weekends. I know this may seem like a long distance, impractical odd reply..but let me explain in short...

My work (50 yr old corporate professional) brought me to Colorado 14 years ago. I grew up on the east coast sailing; racing and off shore cruising. I had my own boats (loved my old Pearson 33 that took me up and down the coast for years), but sold them when I left for Colorado in 2002. I've been chartering quarterly each year to get my sailing in. Chartering is getting old as the logistics getting old. I'm moving to Boston in 8 months and will buy my own boat. Anyway, I joined this forum a month ago and have been keeping my eye out to see if I can make something happen.

So, if you want a buddy to go do an extended weekend here and there, reach out. I'm also flexible and have the means to buy a plane ticket and take off for a 4-5 day sail and share expenses. It's only October and love fall sailing on the east coast so wouldn't be adverse to heading out in a week or so;-)

I looked to see if I can reply to you privately and couldn't find out how to do so. If I set my account right, you should be able to reply to be privately.

Bernie

Re: Eastern North Carolina

I'm sorry that I didn't get back to you sooner; between work and some travel (getting home after the hurricane was a challenge), I neglected everything. Also, I had no clue on how to reply here.

I'm happy to take you sailing, but I need to be honest: I'm on the North Carolina coast and our sailing here is hit and miss. Either it's no wind or else we have a gale. We have only the ocean and it's not always great there.

I do have a suggestion for you, however, in addition to my offer: Namely, go online and find spinsheet.com. Spinsheet is a free publication (also online) published out of Annapolis MD. Online they have crew and captain listings; i.e., those looking for crew and those wanting to crew. They are mainly on the Chesapeake out of Annapolis area, but also Baltimore, Solomon's Island etc. Get on the crew list and see what develops. It's sort of a match.com for sailors (not a dating service, though I imagine that's happened too). I loved sailing the bay and miss it; other reasons brought me here.

I have a Shannon 28, which is a good (small) crusing boat, but not super fast. If you do a Google search, you'll find it.

Keep me posted/in touch on what your thinking is. Cheers, Marty

Re: Eastern North Carolina

Where in Eastern NC are you? I am in New Bern. Might be willing to to trade day sailing days. Its always good to get time on other boats and I could use some help getting my Monitor set up and working smoothly -- crew who can helm and trim the sails well is real valuable for that purpose.

Re: Eastern North Carolina

I'm sorry that it took me so long to reply; I didn't think to look here as I was only looking in 'private messages.' What sort of boat do you have? I keep mine in Southport and yourself?

But my plan for all of 2017 is to travel as much as possible while crewing on Other People's Boats, whether as crew for cruisers or as Crew for Professional Yacht Deliveries by Delivery Captains (I am not USCG licensed yet).

So, I may be in North Carolina at some time in the future, if a delivery or cruise starts or ends there or passes through there.

I am geared up and prepared to travel on short notice (as little as 24 hours notice) to assist Owners and Captains who need crew in 2017 (or even December 2016). This will be my full time focus for ALL of 2017.

And, I hope to meet other CF members as I visit the various ports too.

Re: Eastern North Carolina

Sailorguy - I realize this post is pretty old but I am new to this forum.

I live outside of Wilmington about 30 minutes from Southport. I am very interested in learning to sail and hope to take the ASA 101 with my wife at the southport marina soon.

If you ever still need another hand or two for a trip please let me know. That goes for another local boats too!

Feel free to PM me....
