I am looking for one or two people who do not smoke, have some sailing experience, and can assist as needed with watches and boat
handling, for sailing my 32í Gemini Catamaran
from the Florida
panhandle down to the Bahamas
and from there to Trinidad. This is an unpaid crew position. I prefer that you are between 24 to a fit 45 years of age. The anticipated departure date is April 15, 2014. I sail my boat single
handed for shorter trips, but want additional crew for this venture. We will share food
expenses while aboard and you will get to see and spend time in some beautiful places. You will need a passport, some basic gear
, appropriate attire, whatever spending money
you may need, and a provision to return stateside on your own (this may include airfare, a connection with a northbound boat or other means you may know of).
It is essential that you have a good personality; you must be able to be happy, responsible, and contribute to all duties willingly, have a good attitude and understand that in the confined space of a boat, the ability to get along with everyone is essential. I prefer single
adventurous people over couples. Also, sailing skills and knowledge will be a definite asset in crew selection.
We will not have a rigid schedule and I will base sail decisions on weather
conditions as a rule
. While in transit we will all stand watches on a rotating basis. The time frame for arrival in Trinidad will be 4 to six months with time moored in hurricane
holes if need be. For those who supply sufficient information to establish genuine interest and qualifications, I will send a more detailed information summary of itinerary and living and sailing conditions aboard. A face to face meeting will be indispensable in securing a berth for this voyage. Thank you for your interest. PM me if you are interested.
