need to sail

Hi all. I own a Hunter 30 and I sail the Chesapeake in the Va, MD area. Recently, my first mate can no longer sail with me and I need crew. I'm looking for 1-2 easy going younger individuals (20s-30s). Normally I take the boat out on weekends, May to Nov, and my cruising area is any destination within 20 miles of Annapolis inside the bay. This is where I feel comfortable soloing. If I find crew I trust I will take time off and the Atlantic coast is our oyster. The boat is based in Mayo MD. As a skipper I have 4 years experience. I've captained boats in Annapolis, Thailand and the Caribbean coastal/island regions, but have no blue water experience. Any crew that gets me from A - B safely, the first bottle of booze is on me that weekend if that's your liking. The whole point of my voyages is to have fun and meet people. I will train anyone willing to learn, but some experience is preferred. Mainly I want to know if you get seasick easily. For anyone willing I pay for the docakage/moorings and will coordinate any other supplies. If you want a say in the destination, you have to split the dockage with me. Ships store (food/water) will be split among all of us going. This is a standing offer but I'll place a thread for each weekend I want to go out. Contact me via the looking for crew threads or directly at Photos of the boat interior available upon request.

Now if you were to move the boat to Stavanger, you would have a crew most weekends.
