I have crewed on several deliveries for a total of about 8,000 nm. It’s something I truly enjoy.
Here is a list (All found on CF):
Crew “Lazy Days” (41’ Morgan) 1-2012; The Bahamas to West Palm Beach, FL 350 nm
Crew “Magus” (37’ Banjer) 3-2012; The Bahamas to Beaufort, NC 900 nm
Crew “Swedish Fish” (27’ Catalina) 8-2012; Washington, DC to Beaufort, NC via the ICW 400 nm
Crew “Olivia Lee” (56’ Swan) 12-2012, 5-2013, 6-2014; Stonington, CT - St. Maarten via Bermuda Three deliveries 1,800 nm each (5,400 nm total)
Crew “Misty” (37’ Tayana) 4-2014; Jacksonville, FL to Portland, ME via Beaufort, NC 1,100 nm
These trips may be limited in number but rich in experience. I've encountered severe weather, fog, heavy traffic, entering ports at night, failed equipment, dunnage, fouled props, fouled anchors, medical emergencies, groundings, sea sickness and lazy crew mates...all taken in stride and dealt with effectively.
Crewing has morphed from merely a hobby into a profession. I recently passed my Captain's Licence exam (100 tons) and am enrolled in a random drug testing program. I am CPR certified.
I have the skills and temperament required for long passages. I know my way around a sailboat. I am skilled at watches. Good cook. I'm happy to pitch in when needed. I'm easy to get along with and I’m not too picky when it comes to creature comforts. I also have no shore commitments so length of trip is usually not a problem. I am financially stable. Don't drink or smoke.
So, if you need crew, please feel free to contact me. I’m usually available on short notice. I typically ask for airfare to and from the boat, all on-board food and $100/day; although I can (and have) waived all of these for particularly interesting trips.
Much more information is on my sailing resume which is available upon request. Captain recommendations are also available.
Thank you and fair winds
