: Sailing from Galveston to Guatemala
. Leaving July 29, 30, or 31st. Arriving in the Rio Dolce around the end of August. The route
is Galveston to Florida
to Cozumel to Guatemala
Stops along the way possible and can happen if you can't carry onto the next leg. (Pensacola, Tampa, Key West
, Isla Mujeres, Cancun
, etc.) Once we reach the Yucatán Peninsula we may slow down considerably to cruise
the coast of Belize
I'm 31 year old male and my baby is a 22 year young Beneteau Oceanis
rigged sailboat. She has one full aft cabin
available for two, an aft equipment
room that can sleep one, and two spaces on the saloona couch. I’m looking for at least two more crew. I am not covering transportation costs, but will cover meals
while on board.
: usual stuff plus RIB
, life raft, epirb
w/ data, water
maker, spare sails
, all lines run to cockpit
, ability to nearly fully enclose cockpit
turbine, in-mast furling
, and a safety
Nice things: generator
, forward and aft A/C, electric water heater
, that, and I'm good at catching fish
Any age, any sex, and a little bit of experience (or more) welcomed, but be expected to work
, learn, and hold your watches. Severe seasickness is a no go. You must be able to swim and have great flexibility in dates.
The VERY rough route
is (if everything is perfect and we don't make extra stops, andddd no hurricanes) 2 weeks, most likely 3 to 4. Five days from Galveston to Tampa, two days from Tampa to Key West
, three days from Key West to Cozumel, and three days from Cozumel to Guatamala’s Rio Dolce.
Private message me if you are seriously considering and would like to know more.
