Annapolis to Bermuda

Looking for experienced crew to enter the Annapolis to Bermuda race (and back)in June in a Beneteau 381. Experienced offshore sailors preferred. Share race related expenses by four. Thanks,
Lee

You know, if your boat had a bolt roped main rather than a roller furled one, I might consider offering to crew. I experienced one of those things off the coast of Vancouver this summer and vowed, never again.

Re: Annapolis to Bermuda

I have crew for the Annapolis to Bermuda leg. I still need one more for the Bermuda to Annapolis leg leaving around June 15. The shared cost is $500.00 each of the crew of four.

Have you converted that mast furled main to a bolt roped main? If so, I might be interested.

The relative degree of intelligence of my ass has very little to do with the question. By I take it from your response that you are still laboring with that freekin' mast furled main. Good luck buddy. It's hell getting across the stream until you reach 'happy valley' and, in the process, that main will piss you off to no end.

So...who would like a little adventure?

Going to splash a boat next week to check out the engine and sails.
It's a bit of an odd duck...not normally found in these waters.
A 1972 Van de Stadt 8 meter.
Located on northern Chesapeake.

Anyone up for it?

I've been sailing a boat with furled main for the last 15 years and would never go back to a conventional main.

What are you nuts? It's a classic 1928 Sparkman Stephens one design. There were no pussy main sail roller furlers back then and One Design means just that, class rules and all. Nope bolt rope mains are where it's at.

Re: Annapolis to Bermuda

I did that race 30 years ago as a USNA midshipman. It was a blast. Do you still need another crew member?

Re: Annapolis to Bermuda

Yes it was a great boat. I almost bought one from USNA in November but it was just to beat up. What are the exact dates I would need to be in Bermuda for the I am guessing about 4 day return. Also what exactly is the boat? What is the skippers experience? How well maintained is the boat? What electronics does the boat have?
