Hi group! I just joined now/today! I am so very pleased to meet you and find this board! I have vacation
I had looked at Footloose charters in Tortola, BVI. But no joy for me. First, they don't rent to a solo traveler and sailor. Second, well that $89/day online price
quote just wasn't true and yes, I'm on a super tiny budget
BTW, 23years of flying, 10 in Alaska
& I am just at the 'Regional Airlines' which equals no dough/$ "yet". But mostly just previous life choices/curve balls. All I really have to show for it though is a lot of my own flying adventure stories to tell though! ( & my life too! )
I am willing to meet up and help crew.
I will check out the listings here next. Any other crew needed website refereals appreciated!
I have a lot of inland experience from 48 foot A scows (MYC) to keeled yatchs (WYC) since high school
/ youth. I was off the water
for some time while in Alaska
flying from '98 to 2008. However, I have sailed a number of times back at my pops place on Lake Minnetonka since back in the Lower 48. That's where his boats are. I even crewed in C scow races in recent years. Amazing how fast it comes back.
I may go to either or both Key West
and or BVI just to walk the marina's and check out the bare boat charter
operators. Any very affordable, less than ~$50/day, housing referals that are clean and affordable for single
guy, on land or water
are greatly appreciated. I am not afraid of boat work on my vacation
, nor "work to learn" something new. I can get most anywhere for zero $.
I would love to learn the area and skipper small non-sailor groups that I conjour up in my travels and such if you have a boat
or know of a line on an outfit that allows such (commercial) things.
Please shout out what you know to me & I'll scout it out!
