Couple Looking for Crew on Charter

We're a sailing couple that would like to a crew member or two to share a charter (2-3 weeks in the Caribbean or other waters). He's an experienced owner and charterer. She is still learning and would like a trip with less pressure as the first mate. We usually end up with boats with extra cabins and would enjoy some help with all aspects of sailing. Experience is good but not vital if you are willing to learn and are in good shape and fit.

We enjoy a mix of easy days and some longer sailing days. We are easy going and like to swim, snorkel and explore remote beaches but avoid ports that cater to cruise ships.

If you think your up for a fun trip in warm waters send a message with email address for details and we'll see what happens.

We were thinking of a male since reefing a 50'+ boat can require strength in a blow but thanks for the reply--we are open to new ideas.

Re: Couple Looking for Crew on Charter

Hi Sheeko, we would be interested as well, if you don't have anything set up yet, 46 YO couple (happliy married 23 years)- sail a Pearson Ariel in Lake Erie, fit. She (works for a brokerage firm- stocks, not boats), he (service manager, was a auto tech for 26 years before that), pretty available to travel, kids are gone now, would have to fly down, but no big deal. Working on a forever departure in about 4 years, lived in Grand Cayman before coming to the states, Canada before that(she- American, he- Canadian) and love the islands..especially the not crowded spots

anyway...

Re: Couple Looking for Crew on Charter

Hello there, my name is logan and i am 24. My girlfriends name is melissa and she is 24 as well. We are currently backpacking through brazil along the coast and are looking for a boat that needs a crew. We are a very friendly, fun couple from canada. Melissa is from vancouver, and i was born on the east coast on a small island called prince edward island. We are traveling for 4-6 months depending on our financal situation. I am an oilfield driller and have been for 5 years. I am very handy with power tools, deisal engines, hydraulic systems and duct tape and not shy of hard work. Melissa is a dental receptionist who has traveled much of the world. I have owned a boat as well for a few years in vancouver but it was not a sailboat and it unfortunatly burnt down. But it still alowed me to get the love of the ocean. We hope to hear from you and are willing to commit 100percent to a crew and are willing to fly or bus to where ever nescessary. Hopefully catch a ride somewhere in south or central america to anywhere. Hope to hear from you. logan and melissa

Re: Couple Looking for Crew on Charter

Hi,

I will be in St. Maarten from the 6th of February. I have a Yacht Master Offshore and I am looking to sail in the Caribbean. I travel together with my girlfriend. Last season I sailed from Portugal to Australia and stayed in St. Maarten for 3 months. Now I would like to explore the more remote islands in the Caribbean. We would be very interested in joining you. Hope to hear from you. You can email me at info*at*devossailing*dot*com.

With kind regards,

Bram de Vos

Hello if you are still looking I am currently in Puerto Rico waiting around and looking for a boat headed to the virgin islands. I could also meet you down there. I am a 24 year old male and also enjoy snorkeling as well as experiencing the outdoors. If you are interested email me at perry at westplace.net
