I am seeking interested experienced crew to join me for a spirited sail aboard an OSTAR designed trimaran
NJ to Brunswick, GA. I have many years of sailing experience including a captains license
with Sail Addendum. You will need to provide your own transportation to/from boat
. I cover expenses aboard and this is a non-paid position.
Its an aggressive plan but I only have one month. My wife and I will vacation
aboard JAZ heading from MA to Port Washington
, LI-NY for the first week. Then the push begins south and it would be great to have a third person along for the run through NYC
to Bay-head Yacht Club in Barnegat Bay. This will likely be an overnighter as I would not want to head
into Manesquan inlet in the dark.
I believe I have my crew set for the run south but you know how that goes. Commitments often fall through last minute. The itinerary has been set the best it can be considering that as prudent sailors, we know all good plans can be doused by some unfortunate weather
. Lets pray for great weather
on this one especial since NOAA is calling for an above average hurricane
season in the Atlantic.
As we choose who can make it, here are some details so you know the route
and are ready willing and available. Take a look at the info outlined below, shoot me a PM and I can give you a phone
call to introduce myself and discuss the adventure.
I have put up online the many legs of this eastern seaboard cruise
