Wife and I crew with you!

Hey there!
My wife and I are looking for opportunities to go sailing with you! We are in south Florida so anywhere in ft Myers, west palm beach, or ft Lauderdale would be great.

We would love to go out for day sails or overnights if we get to know each other a bit more.

We are currently powerboaters but have owned a c22 and sailed and crewed on others. So while we aren't super experienced, we can surely be helpful and most of all good company. We are in our early 30's and fun good natured people.

So looking for people to go sailing with you? Let me know!
John and carlyn

There are more than a few websites for crew and boats to connect. This one allows profiles with pics and anonymity until you fell comfortable to share your email address. Safe - Free - Easy.

Re: Wife and I crew with you!

That looks like more like crew for deliveries? We could be interested in that but...

Really just looking to hang and be helpful on day/weekend sails. Make friends and share fun times. I know people have boats sitting there that you need people to go with you!

Re: Wife and I crew with you!

You could share your Crew Profile w/pics with anyone. I'm going to add a section in Profiles where you can say what type of crewing your after. You gave me a great idea. thanks!

I keep an Endeavourcat 30' down in the Punta Gorda area November - May and would love to have you on board. Call me during that period and we can get together.

Re: Wife and I crew with you!

My L 46 Cat is moored at NAS Boca Chica, Key West. I sometimes sail solo from there to local civilian destinations like Conch Harbor Or City Bight marinas, maybe Boca Grande. Always nice to have company.
BTW, I live in Dunedin, an 8 hour drive away and try to visit Bellissimo Gatto at least once a month for 3 or 4 days.

Re: Wife and I crew with you!

We have a Morgan 462 in Fort Lauderdale, you two are welcome to join us. I need more reasons to go sailing instead of just working on the boat ;-). Drop me a PM and we can chat.

Regards,
David

Re: Wife and I crew with you!

John:
I live near Ft. Lauderdale and am looking someone to sail with on my Catalina 42.
I am a certified sailing instructor with a USCG Masters license and lots of sailing experience, I am retired, so have free time to sail.

Let's try a day sail and talk about it.

John
