NY to Bermuda-Antigua early/mid oct.

Need one (two?) crewmembers for a relaxed unhurried delivery from LI NY to Bermuda, then on to Antigua. The boat is a clean 27 Hunter with a Yanmar diesel and autopilot, and many extra sails. I can provide all your food and water (good quality provisions not bargain crap) and a few/three weeks of sailing around the windwards onboard to the USVI, in other words, you will not be kicked off as soon as we arrive. The third mate need not have fantastic depth of sailing exp. but will need to steer and stand watches for up to ten days at a stretch. 3x8=24
If weather turns we will sail for comfort off course. Plan on being onboard for around three to four weeks for the delivery, shakedown and drills on LI Sound, and another month in the Caribbean. Plan on joining the boat somewhere near Eastern LI/CT. You will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the boat, with some flexibility as to your destination down there.
Please PM details.

I'm giving this a bump since we have more than one boat sailing in this direction, as we hope for in this kind of work. Any prospective buddy boats please let me know.

You're planning to sail a 27 ft Hunter from LI to Bermuda in Oct. with three people. Good luck to you my friend, that will be one nasty trip. Doesn't look like too many takers, I can well understand why. Have you done this before? Have you crossed the stream in the Fall? You might want to rethink your plan. If you're headed for the Virgins, take the ditch to Ft Lauderdale and then cross over to the Bahamas and island hop your way south. I really don't think its wise to be 700 miles offshore in a 27 ft hunter in Oct.

Just sayin'

Any of you chickens try to sail the "thorny path from Fl to Antigua? You don't know what your talking about. Rt 66 is broad reaches all the way. Your advice is to sail upwind. Taking it on the nose the whole way. We are tagging along withe the salty dog rally....all senior sailors.
