experienced (24k nm) volunteer crew in Canaries

- 42yo USA citizen volunteer crew w/ clear passport.
- ~24,000nm sailing exp in last 5 years, mostly blue water passages.
- lots of references, most of whom I've sailed with multiple times.
- easygoing, can-do attitude. Cruiser, not a racer.
- sailing resume available upon request. Detailed OCL/FaC profiles as well.
- cost sharing for food and some operational expenses is fine.


Interested in joining an E->W transatlantic passage such as ARC / ARC+ or an independent doing a similar route in or around November.


I like helping people move their boats from A to B.

Slight preference for cats on longer passages but monos are fine, too. Helping with deliveries is also fine and I'm quite good at both applying and removing all the painter's tape as well as not breaking anything or scratching the teak.

Enjoy fishing on passage and am not entirely horrible at it. Nothing like fresh mahi and/or tuna while on passage. Usually use fixed hand lines with mono leaders for simplicity but happy to use whatever gear you have.

Have done a fair amount (24k nm) of sailing with a fair amount of different people and know the drill pretty well. If the above sounds interesting, drop me a line and let's chat.

Re: experienced (24k nm) volunteer crew in Canaries

Kinda depends - West Africa is a pretty big place - are we talking somewhere like Cabo Verde, or somewhere like Nigeria? If it's on a Beneteau 26, I'd need to decline - that's a bit small for 3-4 people, which is my preferred crew size for ocean passages. I've done 2-handed passages before, but anything over 4 days I prefer 3+ people for safety reasons.
