Re: Need Two Crew for Cabo San Lucas to Seattle Sail

Hi, We are interested in crewing for you from San Diego to San Francisco in April,2012. Wolf, my husband has extensive sailing experience, has sailed to Hawaii from B.C., from San Francisco to San Diego, numerous trips leading the sea scouts in BC for a week at a time. I am still learining the ropes but do as I am told and I like to cook. We are planning to sail around the world when we retire. Wolf has his masters in Business and we live in Bellingham. We are both over 50 and easy going, respectful sailors.

Re: Need Two Crew for Cabo San Lucas to Seattle Sail

Hello, I am interested in crewing on your boat, possibly accompanied by my wife.
We are sailing to Cabo in October, which will be our first offshore/long distance experience. So we are not veteran sailors, but we still have much to offer. My wife is an amazing cook, for starters. I am a weldor, fabricator, mechanic, electronics tech that can fix pretty much anything. We were wondering, are you sailing down with the Baja Ha Ha? If so, we may meet you in October. At any rate, if you are interested, we hope to hear from you. We are both mid-30's, non-smokers, responsible fun people.

Re: Need Two Crew for Cabo San Lucas to Seattle Sail

Craig, I am interested in your sailing plan. My "World Crusing Route" book mentions that May/June is the best time. It also mentions that you will have mostly head winds going back. If you have ever beat into wind and waves for days on end you know this is not the most desireable way to travel.I assume you will have extra halyards and sails. Have you made this trip before? Please tell me about it if you have. Thank you !! John

Re: Need Two Crew for Cabo San Lucas to Seattle Sail


You probably know everything I don't about ocean sailing.

I'm willing and able and free for as long as necessary. I have some ocean experience but more on the Chesapeake Bay with my own Columbia 27, Catalina 37 and seeking a Morgan 45 for San Diego sailing. I'm an architect, real estate developer and chemical manufacturing company owner. I want to build my off-shore sailing resume. I'm a healthy, young 63 and 6'-2". I have spent a fair amount of time working on boats including standing and running rigging, winch rebuilds, sail repair, deck and hull repairs, engine and plumbing repair and bottom cleaning. I've also spent a fair amount of time getting off tidal mud flats and sand bars:-)

Let me know if an extra crew is needed.
